Samoa in the News

The manumea

When I posted last about the preservation efforts to save the manumea, or little dodo, I didn't know that conservationists were worried that Samoa's national bird was actually extinct.

But apparently, that is what they were thinking. At least until recently when one of the research team fairly serendipitously spotted one of the birds on the big island of Savaiʻi.
