Data on the Kakerori or the Rarotonga Flycatcher in Cook Islands
Traditional leaders, Island Councils, communities and government have all contributed to the establishment and management of PAs. Most Cook Islands PAs are not covered by legislation, and the few that are legislated vary in their levels of protection. Only three of the 14 terrestrial PAs are covered by formal government-based legislations and regulations, which include the Suwarrow National Park Declaration, Takutea Island Regulations and Takuvaine Water Catchment Regulations.

Kakerori Fact Sheet 2016. The Rarotonga Flycatcher or Kakerori (Pomarea dimidiata) is a small (19-23g) forest-dwelling bird endemic to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands, where it is found mainly in the moister south-eastern section of that island, particularly in what is now the 155haTakitumu Conservation Area (TCA). Recently, it has been translocated also to the Ship Rat-free island of Atiu close by, to form an insurance population
There are 14 terrestrial PAs, which total at least 1407.2 hectares (five PAs are uncalculated), or about six per cent of the Cook Islands’ total 240 km2 land mass. Terrestrial PA are concentrated in a few locations. Three of the 15 islands in Cook Islands are wildlife reserves (Suwarrow, Takutea and Manuae), almost 40% of the terrestrial PAs are represented by four motu on Pukapuka, and three of Rarotonga’s four PAs make up 36% of total terrestrial PAs.

This policy applies requests for data held by a Ministry. The purpose of this policy is to:
• encourage the free exchange of data within a Ministry, with other government agencies within the country and with the public, as appropriate
• ensure that sensitive information (including commercially sensitive data) held by the Ministry is not compromised.
State of Environment (SoE) reports provide in-country partners with a process to gather data on current environmental indicators, document their status, and formulate a plan for keeping these indicators on track or developing policies and programs as needed. This SoE Toolkit dataset contains resources that serve as guides to help create up-to-date State of Environment reports.
