French Polynesia Endangered Species

The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ for French Polynesia in the South Pacific Ocean lists 78 extinct species, 11 extinct-in-the-wild species, 61 critically endangered species, and 27 endangered species. French Polynesia's extinct and endangered numbers are relatively high compared to fellow island territories due to its extensive biodiversity and more-widespread ecologic research. Some critically endangered species: the Fatu Hiva Flycatcher, Mangareva Kingfisher, Marquesas Kingfisher, Moorean Viviparous Tree Snail, a Polynesian Tree Snail species varieties, Tahiti Flycatcher, Ua Pou Monarch bird (possibly extinct), and White-Collared Ground Dove. Endangered species include the Black Teatfish, Henderson Petrel, Kuhl's Lorikeet, Newell's Shearwater bird, Nukuhiva Imperial Pigeon, Pheonix Petrel, Rapa Fruit Dove, Society Islands Pigeon, Tahiti Reed Warbler, Tuamotu Sandpiper, Ultramarine Lory, and White-Throated Storm Petrel.
