Reason: Tourism is increasing at the rate of 12% per year. Hotels, restaurants, motor vehicles and pollution generated through them is degrading the natural life of this once isolated island where nearly 9000 species call it home. People bringing their animals, such as smuggled goat and pigs are competing with indigenous animals for food. Cruise ships are bringing in pests like rats and cockroaches creating imbalance in ecosystem.

Fact: Over 3/4th of the reptiles and birds are endemic
Threat: Destruction of Ecosystem
Expected Time Remaining: Unknown/Not Predicted
