“Invasive Species Management Builds Climate Resilience”


The SPREP Invasive Species Team works towards the goal of "Pacific people benefit from healthy and resilient island and ocean ecosystems" with the primary objective to significantly reduce the socio-economic and ecological impact of invasive species on land and water ecosystems and control or eradicate priority species.

The Current State of Invasive Species Management in the Pacific

Invasive species are the primary cause of extinction on islands (IUCN Red List 2020, SPREP 2016, SOCO 2017). Invasive species have been formally identified as a threat for 1,531 species in the Pacific islands region to date (IUCN Red List, 2020).
