We are a flourishing network of seven national organisations supported by a small BirdLife Secretariat in Fiji, and all the local people that we work with along the way. Read more about BirdLife Pacific.
What we do
We implement conservation projects across the Pacific region, with a particular focus on restoring oceanic islands to their former glory by removing invasive species. Read more about our programmes.

The petrels of the Pacific are in decline. These iconic birds have lost more populations in the wider Pacific than any other bird family. BirdLife wants to turn the tide. Pacific Petrels in Peril is the first comprehensive plan to protect this family of birds. Priority actions will include finding the breeding sites of Fiji Petrel, Beck's Petrel and Heinroths Shearwater. Overall there are more than 18 species that need help. Because petrels mainly face the same threats, conservation actions, like the restoration of islands of the Acteon & Gambier Archipelagos, can save a number of species with one operation. But the challenge is bigger than just BirdLife and we need the help of partners and especially financial support. Become part of saving these really special birds from sliding into extinction. .
Largest conservation project ever in French Polynesia hits historic milestone. The Acteon & Gambier island restoration operation makes an unprecedented contribution to saving one of our world’s rarest birds and a number of other endangered species from extinction.
One of BirdLife’s most adventurous projects. The largest conservation project in French Polynesia ever. An incredibly remote location. A huge number of species to benefit. Six rare and endangered bird species to be saved. An enormous logistical challenge. Helicopter. Boats. GPS. Storms. Lightning. And wildlife. Restoring a tropical paradise in the Pacific… The Acteon & Gambier Island Restoration Operation has begun.
