Despite its tropical dry climate, little vegetation and scarce rainfall, Cabo Verde has an interesting and unique fauna, with particular emphasis on birds.

The uniqueness of the birds is reflected in the great variety of endemic species spread over almost all the islands. From the coast to the mountains, or in the treetops, their "habitat" is varied, lending a peculiar color and a sound to the natural landscape.

Having a rare beauty and with their diet being adapted to Cabo Verde's environment, some of these birds are on the verge of extinction, which is why great efforts have been made to preserve them.

 If uniqueness defines the Cabo Verdean people, it is only fitting to have endemic birds of Cabo Verde in a Banco de Cabo Verde coin collection.
