Fiji Petrel crash-lands in Gau

NatureFiji-MareqetiViti is the Species Guardian for Fiji Petrel under the BirdLife Preventing Extinctions Programme. MareqetiViti has implemented a Fiji Petrel project since its establishment in mid-2007, and currently employs three full time staff and many part time field assistants on the island, all but one of them from Gau Island. A Species Champion is being urgently sought to support this work, which includes searching for nest burrows, working with island communities to gather information about the threats to the petrel, and training local people to help find nests and care for and release birds which land in villages at night after being attracted by lights.
