This flying fox is a solitary creature, roosting individually or occasionally in pairs primarily in the understory of trees that provide food such as coconuts or mangos. The island also contains Endangered Fijian Kauri Pine trees whose numbers are in continuous decline as its wood is highly sought after for construction material. The insular flying fox or Pacific flying fox (Pteropus tonganus) is a species of flying fox in the family is geographically widespread, the most widespread flying fox in the Pacific: it is found in American Samoa, the Cook Islands, Fiji, New Caledonia, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa (where it is called pe'a fanua, pe'a fai and taulaga), the Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. Easily captured species provide powerful opportunities to motivate research and conservation action. Conversely, rare and cryptic species with low capture probability can be difficult to study. We examined the capture success of Fiji’s Pteropodidae (Pteropus tonganus, P. samoensis, Notopteris macdonaldi, and Mirimiri acrodonta) and incorporated capture success and associated observations.
