One Big Leap for the Marquesas with SOP Manu
n november 2019, a BirdLife-led team camped out on one of the world’s remotest islands to learn more about the Endangered birds we urgently need to save. Here’s what they discovered.
From Liv Grant
The nine-person expedition team comprised experts from BirdLife, SOP Manu (BirdLife in French Polynesia), Auckland Zoo, Island Conservation and local Marquesans.
RESTORING PARADISE IN THE MARQUESAS
The removal of introduced species is the only solution to restoring the ecological balance and ecosystem resilience in these remote islands, and preserve their cultural importance.
Together with the local community, BirdLife has identified seven islands (including Mohotani) as the focus for our ambitious multi-island restoration operation that will secure over 2,000 hectares of predatorfree habitat, providing safe heavens for five globally-threatened birds and protecting a range of endemic plants from extinction.
As preparations advance, we continue to raise the vital funds necessary to save these irreplaceable species.
Au fur et à mesure que les préparatifs avancent, nous continuons à réunir les fonds essentiels nécessaires pour sauver ces espèces irremplaçables.

Enjoy the issue and stay safe,
