The rare Kopeka bird lives deep within the caverns of Anatakitaki Cave; while mystery surrounds the origins of the human bones in the Rimarau Burial Cave.

BIRD WATCH Conservationists have transferred the rare Kakerori (Rarotonga Flycatcher) and Kura (Rimatara Lorikeet) to Atiu and both appear to be breeding successfully.

Rated by Lonely Planet as one of the best beaches in the Pacific.

that grows on the makatea. There are proposals to put most of this area aside as a nature reserve. THE KURA The people of Rimatara in French Polynesia gifted 27 of these brightly coloured lorikeets to Atiu in 2007. It was a conservation project to establish a reserve population of the Kura as they are known on Atiu. The Kura had previously lived in the Southern Cook Islands but was hunted for its striking red feathers and was last seen here around 200 years ago. Atiu is becoming well known for its populations of rare birds. MANGAIA Mangaia is the second largest island of the Cooks and with a land area of 52 square kilometres, it isn’t much smaller than Rarotonga. But its population is much smaller - around 500 people.It is 176 kms (109 miles) southeast of Rarotonga and being further south it has a slightly cooler climate all year round. The topography of Mangaia is similar to that of Atiu, but on a much larger scale. From a shallow lagoon inside the surrounding reef, makatea (fossilised coral) rises in steep bluffs and cliffs and drops just as dramatically into the interior, forming cliffs of up to 100 metres (328 ft). The makatea contains many caves. The largest and most spectacular of these is Teruarere, which forms a seemingly endless series of interconnected caves.
