Iconic Tahiti Monarch

Community action saving iconic Tahiti Monarch

Wed, 28/10/2015
The decline of the Tahiti Monarch is being reversed by ongoing and intensive action by BirdLife French Polynesian partner Société d'Ornithologie de Polynésie (SOP MANU) and the local community. For the first time in many years the population has topped 50 birds with 17 pairs incubating 31 nests last summer and fledging 12 chicks. Small gains but with a species so close to extinction, this is a welcome outcome but we need help to secure the future of this iconic bird.
