THE STORY:

Island Conservation wrote -

This story is a sad one - but it doesn't have to be.

Today, there are fewer than 1,300 Endangered Tuamotu Sandpipers (or "Titi" as the locals call them) left in the world. A major cause for their continued decline into extinction is the presence of invasive rats on the islands they inhabit. Invasive rats devour the Titi's eggs and young. You can help save the Titi from extinction by donating today. We are working with local partners in the region to remove invasive rats from one of the four islands they depend on for survival - Vahanga Atoll in French Polynesia.  

By donating, you are becoming a critical part of this important mission to save the Titi and other bird species threatened with extinction. 

We will continue to update you on the progress of this project, so please check back regularly!

Proof of Action

In 2011, we removed invasive rats from three islets in Tahanea Atoll, French Polynesia. The removal was a success and today, because of our actions, life on Tahanea is beginning to look a little brighter for the birds which can now safely nest in their native habitat.
