DIISE Database

Welcome to the Database of Island Invasive Species Eradications (DIISE), a new tool for conservation practitioners

The database can be viewed here: http://diise.islandconservation.org

Islands are the epicenter of the current extinction crisis and invasive vertebrates are a leading cause of extinctions on islands. However, protection of threatened biodiversity by removing invasive vertebrates from islands is becoming a powerful and widely used conservation tool. To date we have documented 1182 successful eradications of invasive vertebrates on 762 islands.

The DIISE is a publicly available resource to help land managers and conservation practitioners learn more about invasive vertebrate eradications. The database provides detailed information on individual eradication projects and also provides opportunities to analyze trends in past eradication projects.

We will maintain and update the database regularly to incorporate new eradication projects. We encourage you to review the database and submit edits to existing data or new projects not currently in the database. Details on how to submit comments are provided on the DIISE website, http://diise.islandconservation.org.

The DIISE is a collaborative partnership comprising Island Conservation, the IUCN SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group, the Coastal Conservation Action Lab at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Maanaki Whenua-Landcare Research, and the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
