Te mana o te moana was informed yesterday of the presence on the territory of individuals meeting the population in the streets of Papeete in order to collect donations on behalf of WWF and Te mana o te moana .
We formally deny this information. Te mana o te moana is in no way linked to these actions. Our logo and identity have been used without our agreement on documents created and presented to the public without our knowledge. A serious breach to the law and a profound attack on the values we defend.
After investigating, it turns out that these people are representatives of Direct Sud company, to whom we spoke to and who indicated that they were mandated by WWF to collect donations in Polynesia. We have so far been unable to obtain confirmation of this.
However, they strongly denied conducting a collection campaign for the benefit of Te mana o te moana.
For our part, we are continuing our investigations and are keeping the right to act in front of the competent authorities to enforce the law.
