Conduct assessment on Makatea Island to confirm if it is rat free and propose to use the island as a site for the conservation of endangered bird species like the Polynesia Imperial pigeon and the Makatea ground-dove. SOP Manu will implement biosecurity measures necessary to protect Makatea against any rat invasions.
