Birdlife has published our first videos of an endangered Mao at the nest. This is the first two nest ever found for this species so it is pretty exciting stuff but I will not spoil them for you.

If you are interested in viewing them and reading the article go to:
http://www.birdlife.org/community/20...mation-on-mao/

Both the Mao and Manumea are enadangered birds endemic to Samoa. Both have been declining rapidly and we are working out why and what to do about it.

More infomation on the project on the Mao and Manumea are also avaliable at our website www.samoanbirds.com

How can you help?

If you like the look of our work please leave us a comment and you can give us a hand in numerous ways. For instance we are always looking at more ways to publish our results and pass on infomation about these species to the public so if you have ideas/contacts or want to spread the word around the world via twitter or facebook that would be great!
Alternatively if you or your organisation want to support us by contributing to transmitters, nest cameras and rat traps we would also love to hear from you.

Enjoy the videos!

Rebecca
