This site covers the inland craters of Atua district on the eastern end of Upolu. The site includes the Afulilo Reservoir which was cleared for the hydro-electric dam. The site stretches from the Aleipata district where craters of Lanomoa and Luaofafine are located, to the inland craters adjacent to the Afulilo HEP dam.
The site has been surveyed on at least 3 occasions. All surveys identified high densities of pigeons and doves, including Tooth-billed Pigeon. Ma'o is also present while good numbers of both Samoan Flycatcher and Samoan Triller have been recorded on the site.
