French Polynesia is incredibly diverse. However, the push for industrialization and increased human activity has destroyed natural habitats and created pollution. In particular, this has damaged the banana and sugarcane industries which in the past have accounted for large sums of the economies.1 The high cost of importing fossil fuels for energy has caused the territory to implement forms of renewable energy, and these energy sources account for 30% of all of the energy supply.2
