French Polynesia has more endangered species than any other overseas territory, and counts 9 critically endangered bird species.

Let’s not repeat what happened to the Dodo, because of ignorance, two centuries ago in Mauritius!

In order to pursue our conservation efforts, we need help from private and public companies, governments, local municipalities, politicians and, of course, individuals concerned with this environmental issue.

The future of Polynesian Birds is at stake at this very moment, so now would be a great time to help protecting them !

Sponsor a Bird

You can sponsor any banded bird, providing a pecuniary support that will help financing its protection.

In return, you will receive regular updates on its health, life events, behaviour, mating status, etc. You can also come on a fieldtrip to observe it by yourself in its natural environment.

You can also sponsor a bird online on our website.

Corporate Philanthropy

The Polynesian Ornithological Society is recognised as being of general interest by the Government of French Polynesia in the decree n°1023/CM dated July 21st, 1999.

As such, it allows companies offering us financial assistance to benefit from tax incentives as provided for by Article 113-4 of the French Polynesian Tax Regulation.

The Association appeals for corporate funding, preferably through sustainable partnerships.

Investing in the future with us, in a context of sustainable development, can bring clear added value to companies, especially in terms of public image.

We will be pleased to arrange a meeting and answer your questions at your convenience.
