Admiralty Islands lowland rain forests

WWF Abstract

The thick rain forests of Papua New Guinea conceal many mysteries. The Admiralty Islands, a small group of islands just north of the mainland, are particularly isolated and remote. This rugged land is home to rare species of birds and bats, some not seen anywhere else on Earth, and is nearly covered with forest. Although the islands are considered an important area of biodiversity, to this day relatively little is known about them.
