Mauritius

Mauritius is a tiny island nation found east of Madagascar in the southern Indian Ocean, and is famous both in the Muggle world and the wizarding world as the home of the Diricawl, which Muggles refer to as the dodo. Though Muggles believe that the bird died out over a century ago, wizards are aware of the bird’s ability to vanish at will, and so realize that the magical creatures still do, in fact, exist (FB).
