Range Description

Ducula goliath is endemic to New Caledonia (to France). Recent studies have estimated much higher populations than previously surmised, with 1,500-7,000 individuals for Parc Provincial Rivire Bleue depending on the season (Grillet 1995, J-P. Demoncheaux in litt. 1997, Y. Ltocart verbally 1998) and 100,000 individuals for the entire island (Ekstrom et al. 2000). It is distributed from the far north (Mandjelia) to the extreme south at Goro and is common in suitable habitat throughout (V. Chartendrault N. Barr in litt. 2007). It is present on the Ile des Pins and absent from the Loyalty islands (V. Chartendrault N. Barr in litt. 2007).
