In the heart of the Pacific Ocean, the islands of French Polynesia are known to host an exceptional biodiversity specific to each archipelago. This diversity of living things, whether terrestrial or aquatic, functions in ecosystems necessary for the survival and life of Man by offering him numerous services (supplies, regulation, cultural).

The Polynesian native forest had more than 880 species, 62% of which were endemic. It is estimated that in the 1,000 to 1,500 past years 2/3 of the wooded area that covered the islands was destroyed or transformed by man. Today, nearly 1,800 species were introduced in the territory and 42% of native species are threatened.

AOA is the first Polynesian initiative that makes a long-term commitment to restoring the biodiversity and ecological state of Polynesian forests.

The
Follow up

 

To ensure the effectiveness of monitoring and measuring, they are carried out regularly in the project area. 80 vegetation study plots have been set up in the work areas as well as a bird listening point every 200 m along the river and its tributary. Initial data collection established a zero state. Data will be collected annually in order to monitor the evolution of flora and avifauna in a qualitative, quantitative and spatial manner.

Our
Commitment

Plant as many native and endemic species (trees, shrubs, ferns) as possible every year to regenerate degraded forests, ensure stability and prosperity of our forests.

Agroforestry

Once the trees are planted and established, we envision  creating agroforestry projects to improve space utilization while preserving the environment and showcasing local expertise.

 

We are studying the integration of medicinal and dye plants to offer sustainable bio-sourced cultural products.
