Seeking rides to remote atolls of the Tuamotu

Hi! I am seeking a way to get to very remote uninhabited atolls of the Tuamotu Archipelago (French Polynesia) to conduct research on an endangered bird species there. These atolls are Tenararo (Acteon Group) and Morane, in the south east of the archipelago and Reitoru, in its centre. I can easily get to any place in French Polynesia that has an airport and get onboard there (i.e. Tahiti, Gambiers, Fakarava, Makemo, etc.). I am not a sailer, but would be extremely happy to help onboard (I am a hard worker used to tough field conditions). Ideal dates for me would be anytime from April 2010 to August 2010, but I can be flexible. I need at least 2 days on any of these atolls (longer stays would be better). If you are going this way and are interested in having one or two biologists helping onbroad and showing you the birds, please contact me for more information.

Thank you so much!!

Hi Marie Helene,
I don't have a boat, but if you find one, I'm volunteering for the adventure!
I'm in southern Australia and have experience helping out biologists in the field. Good luck

Hi Lux,

Thanks for your reply and your interest. I sadly don't have a boat and research funding isn't easy these days... :-) so I won't find one. But thank you!

Cheers
