The proposed Pohnpei Watershed Forest Reserve IBA is contiguous with the Pohnpei Watershed Forest Reserve. The Reserve is legislated under the 1987 Pohnpei Watershed and Mangrove Act (CSP, 2007). Much of the boundary has been delineated and monitoring takes place in ecologically sensitive areas of the watershed. Conservation activities to lesson intrusion into the watershed, particularly by agroforestry, are also undertaken. The Conservation Society of Pohnpei is working with the State Invasive Species Task force to eradicate invasive species.
Non-bird biodiversity: The FSM NBSAP (2002) lists the area as containing a number of conservation targets, including: • Pohnpei Island Skink • Pacific Sheath-tailed Bat • Pohnpei Flying Fox • Musa tikap
