The members of the ‘Birds of Paradise’ family are considered by many to be amongst the most beautiful creatures on earth as well as an extraordinary example of evolutionary adaptation. These animals hold great significance both to the indigenous people who share their forest homes and to the adventurous history of western naturalist pursuits.
