A before-and-after study in 1992-4 on Hiva, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia (Kuehler et al. 1997), found 14 ultramarine lorikeets Vini ultramarina on the island following the translocation of 13 birds from Ua Huka between August 1992 and November 1993. There were also anecdotal reports of juvenile lorikeets being present. This translocation programme is discussed in more detail below.
