Tongan tropical moist forests

WWF Abstract

If you were to hop from island to island in this tropical ecoregion, you'd end up visiting over 171 islands. One would be the island of Niue in New Zealand, and the other 170 would be islands in the Kingdom of Tonga. Your trip would reveal that biodiversity flourishes on many of the islands, where you may spy such incredible creatures as blue-throated lorikeets, purple-capped fruit doves, or NiuafoÂ’ou megapodes, birds that lay their eggs in mounds.
