Tahiti Flycatcher

The Tahiti Flycatcher is classified as Critically Endangered (CR), facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild.

The conservation program initiated 4 years ago by Société d'Ornithologie de Polynésie consists in the protection of the nests against rats during the breeding season.
