Island Restoration Project in French Polynesia Officially Declared a Success.
A recent expedition to Tahanea by our colleagues at Simon Fraser University detected no sign of rodents on the three small motu (islets) where rodent removal efforts took place last year. We can now safely say that the project was successful!
According to Richard Griffiths, IC Project Director, “Numbers of titi (Tuamotu Sandpiper) are still low as a result of the cyclone that passed through the area shortly after the project was implemented, but the population is likely to rebound and, thanks to the removal of rats from Toreauta and Kotuetue, eventually expand.”
