The Manumea are one of the world’s most endangered and least know species. Vital information for designing a management program for population recovery is required to save this close relative of the dodo. The first step is to collect information regarding the locations and densities of residual populations. We aim to focus conservation action by determining the core locations and migratory requirements of Manumea/tooth-billed pigeon and to also collect any local knowledge on this species. This work will engage local villagers and will have a conservation education component to ensure local support.
