The Fortress of the Orange-tailed SkinkAlix Le Juge
In support to the work done by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation to save threatened Mauritian species through the restoration of entire ecosystems.
In this instance, the saving of the orange-tailed skink, endemic to Flat island.
Many endemic species, particular to the offshore islands, survived as these pieces of land of Mauritius were at some stage separated from the main island by water, and certain animal and plants were concerved by their inaccessibility from the main island for a certain time.
These outer islands and some inside the lagoon are declared protected national parks by the government of Mauritius.
The islands depicted on the painting from left along the horizon: Pigeon Island, Flat Island, on the right Ilot Gabriel, and behind Serpent Island, all protected by Mauritius gvernment.
At the bottom of the painting is a topographic boundary line, symbol of national concervation parks.
