Since 2009, the Polynesian Ornithological Society Manu is in full partnership with Birdlife international. This international Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) aims at protecting the Nature, especially the birds. It federates 120 NGO representing many countries, thousands of amateur naturalists, professional ornithologists, ecologists, scientists and conservation managers. Liaising with local authorities, governments and international organisations, Birdlife int. yields scientific datas and provides an expertise on birds conservation as well as on the protection, management and restoration of their habitats. Its « Preventing Extinction » program and network have been very helpfull, even more so in 2014 through an emergency call that raised enough funds to finance all the Monarch-related actions.
In 2015, in collaboration with Island Conservation and Manu, Birdlife International carried on a hudge restoration project of 3 atolls and 3 islets of Acteon and Gambier in South French Polynesia.
Great thanks to this fellow organization.
La European Commission currently is POS Manu’s largest provider of funds. It supported us through 2 projects :
MANU conducts 2 projects as part of the National Biodiversity Strategy.
The first one focuses on improving and rationalising the simultaneous control of several Alien Invasive Species ( Black Rat, Common Myna, Red-vented Bulbul, Swamp Harrier, feral cats, Miconia Velvet tree and African Tulip tree ) as part of the Monarch Conservation Programs in Tahiti and Fatu Hiva.
The second project is a study on the Tahiti Petrel living on the Temehani Plateau (Raiatea). It is carried out together with the Tiare apetahi Conservation program.
