FAIR Island Field Sites
The FAIR Island Project started as a partnership between the California Digital Library (CDL), the University of California, Berkeley, Gump South Pacific Research Station and the Tetiaroa Society’s Ecostation. We are excited to grow our partnerships with additional field stations, both within the UCNRS system and beyond. If you are interested in collaborating please send us an email at info at fairisland.org.
