    The coast and the mountainous massifs are home to exceptional fauna, notably the giant geckos or the black meliphage.
    The Ni and Pourina rivers are sanctuaries for certain species of freshwater fish such as the Protogobius attiti or the Sicyopterus sarasini. They are home to other endemic species in various stages of growth. The preservation of these rivers allows the reseeding of these species in the neighbouring rivers.

    On the marine side, the double reef drop-off is teeming with fish and shellfish.
