Welcome on the Manu POS website

Polynesian Ornithological Society.

The Polynesian Ornithological Society, a.k.a. « Manu » (meaning “bird” in Tahitian language), is working for the protection of wild birds of Tahiti and her Islands as well as for the preservation of their habitats. A group of enthusiastic amateurs of French Polynesian birds founded this non-governmental and non-profit association in July 1990.


Seabird in distress? What can I do ?

Avoid handling unnecessarily for not stressing or damaging its feathers;
Place it in a quiet cardboard, protected from predators, heat and light;
Do not feed it;
Call as soon as possible the association Manu (+689)87 222 799 or (+689)40 521 100 or contact-us by email or Facebook. We will try to organize its recovery. If no one answers, leave your name and telephone number on our answering machine and we will contact you ASAP. THANK YOU FOR HIM!
