Worldwide Species Action Plans

Madagascar Pond-heron action planThe main threats directly or indirectly affecting the Madagascar Pond-heron include habitat destruction and degradation; human disturbance at nesting sites; reduced nesting sites leading to competition for nesting, feeding and roosting sites; and collection of eggs and young birds. In Madagascar, there is increasing evidence of hybridisation with the much more common Squacco Heron A. ralloides, although the latter does not breed on Mayotte, Aldabra or the Comoros.
