In the South Pacific, an important island has been forgotten and neglected from monitoring and research programs on marine biodiversity: Bora-Bora. To fill this gap in our knowledge, we have analyzed the only two datasets available to date on the biodiversity of Bora-Bora’s reefs: Reef Checks’ program; and Biodiversity’s monitoring program. Both monitoring programs showed that the corals in Bora-Bora lagoon are in good health. Overall, our monitoring programs, conducted on coral, macro-invertebrates and fish, suggest that the luxury tourism industry developed at Bora-Bora contributed to the maximization of the economic and social benefits of coral reefs while preserving Bora-Bora’s natural sites, ecosystems and the socio-cultural balance.
