    About This Project

    Te Vaa Mataeinaa - Tahitian for Watersheds - are critical to providing drinking water for people, nurturing forests and wildlife, and irrigating crops and livestock on the volcanic island of Moorea. However, watershed research on Moorea is lacking. Our team will longitudinally sample waterways on the island to provide high quality data for land management and pollution mitigation strategies for the whole island.
