Henderson is one of the world’s least disturbed raised coral islands. Measuring 37km2 rising to 30 meters above sea level.
With its unique assemblage of plant and animal species, the Island supports 73 plant species, of which nine are found no-where else in the world. Its four land bird’s species are unique to Henderson: a fruit pigeon, a small parrot, warbler, and a flightless rail. The Island is a vital haven for nesting seabirds. Henderson was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1988, because its ecology is virtually intact, despite extensive early Polynesian occupation.
