|Some of the 111 islands of the lake|
Do not repeat the same things in all your islands! Taking into account the fragmentation of landscape and the high number of islands availaible, our recommendation is to apply different management to different islands. Some island could focus on the conservation of rare endemic plants; some other islands could be let fully natural; and may be 10 well-chosen islands should be devoted to conservation of coconut palms varieties or populations. For instance, an island could be progressively replanted with palms of the Rennell variety, but only those of green colour and presenting a prominent nipple at the terminal part of their fruits; some other islands could be planted with palms of brown colour with roundish shape, etc… This is a possible application of the Polymotu concept.
