The Ultramarine Lorikeet Collection focuses on a bird that is a jewel of nature. It has an orange beak, a cobalt blue forehead surrounded by purple-blue on its crown. The rest of its upper parts are a dullish turquoise blue and its chest is white. This beautiful bird is endemic to the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia. Due to heavy deforestation and predation by the invasive black rat and stray cats, this species exists only on one of the islands, numbering 1000-2500 individuals in 2008.
