To create an up to date record of the wildlife (marine and terrestrial) of Niue. This tiny island, based in the southern pacific (nearly 450km from Va-avau and over 1,000km from the cook islands) is one of the largest raised coral attols in the world. It is especially noted as a breeding ground for humpack whales and the Niueans have campaigned hard to protect these and the many other marine mammals visiting the area. The island is surrounded by a shallow coral reef and subject to very little pressure from tourists. There is a growing awareness of their ancestral homeland amongst the many thousands of Niueans who live overseas (only 1,500 residents on Niue) but very little information on the island. Support from tourists, providing photographs and data on the island's wildlife will provide a valuable, free resource for those interested.
