Tongareva's Community Environmental Society was formed to protect our subsistence way-of- life, to keep safe our precious ecosystem, to use our resources wisely, and pass these on as our Gift to the Future. Our People are indigenous Polynesians speaking Tongarevan Maori. Our Homeland is very remote, a little south of the equator.
Main work now is restoring failed forests, monitoring turtles, birds and corals; and teaching our People. We are badly affected by climate change, including fish moving away. Decarbonisation is going well: we use solar power and have some Storm Rides E-scooters ~ they are truly awesome. Projects are successful, but a massive challenge is oceanic plastics ~ the unwanted gifts from the Far-Away world !!!
