The Ornithological Society of Polynesia

The Ornithological Society of Polynesia - "MANU" - was founded in July 1990 by enthusiastic amateur birdwatchers in French Polynesia. Its purpose is to take action to protect the birds, habitats and biodiversity of French Polynesia, and work with the human population to promote the sustainable management of natural resources.
Polynesia's terrestrial avifauna consists of some thirty species. This relatively low number, however, masks a high rate of endemism. Only Reef Heron, Spotless Crake and Grey Duck have a large distribution throughout the South Pacific. The rest are only found in French Polynesia.
In contrast French Polynesia has 27 species of seabird, making it one of the richest tropical areas for marine species. The majority of bird species are widespread in the tropical area. Nine species only breed in the Pacific and one, Murphy's Petrel, is endemic to eastern Polynesia. Three subspecies are also endemic to French Polynesia.
