Fregate Island (219 ha) is a privately owned island which was managed as a copra plantation until the 1950s. The forest is now dominated by coconut Cocos nucifera, cashew (Anacardium occidentale), and other formerly cultivated species. Fregate Island is a refuge for two bird species, three invertebrates and a mollusc which are endemic to the Seychelles. It supports the largest populations of six endemic reptiles.
