Makira Island, Solomon Islands

Makira (also known as San Cristobal) is a small island located east of Guadalcanal and south of Malaita, the two largest islands in the country. The region is perhaps best known for its extensive populations of threatened or endemic bird species, largely based in the tropical rainforest. The landscape is rugged, with steep-sided valleys, many streams and waterfalls, and the most inland swaps of any island in the nation. Most of the farmland is utilized by families to grow subsistence crops and a limited amount of typical cash crops, like cacao and banana.
