Island Conservation’s Annual Report

Island Conservation and our partners are re-writing the future for native island species.

As you will read in the 2010 Annual Report, with your support, the Critically Endangered San Nicolas Island Fox, in California’s Channel Islands; the Threatened Higo Chumbo Cactus, on Puerto Rico’s Desecheo Island; and the Leach’s Storm-petrel, on Rat Island, in the Alaskan Aleutian Islands are thriving now that we have freed their islands of invasive predators.

2011: The Year of Growth

We entered 2011 determined to fulfill our mission in a bigger way. We continued our work protecting native plants and animals from Rábida, Bartolomé and eight islets in the Galápagos with the Galápagos National Park and Charles Darwin Foundation—the first phase of a larger project to restore the famed archipelago and protect 12 threatened species, including the Endangered Galápagos Penguin by removing invasive rodents. We then focused our attention on Palmyra Atoll in the Pacific’s Line Islands to protect the rare Pisonia forest, the Coconut Crab and critical habitat for 29 bird species within a vast 450,000 square mile range with our partners the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Nature Conservancy.

But we didn’t stop there. We established new programs in Chile, Australia, the Caribbean and the Galápagos. We created an innovative database of the world’s most threatened island species, so we, and our partners, know exactly where we need to work to prevent extinctions.

Our Sincerest Thanks

Thank you to all our supporters, partners and friends for your committment to conservation. Together  we are making the difference between survival and extinction.

P. S. Be sure to read our letter “Island Rescue: Leveraging Our Work to Make a Global Difference” in the Annual Report to see where we’re going in 2012!

About Island Conservation

Island Conservation prevents extinctions by removing invasive species from islands. To date, we have successfully restored 64 islands worldwide, benefiting 1195 populations of 487 species and subspecies. Working together with local communities, government management agencies, and conservation organizations, we select islands that have the greatest potential for preventing the extinction of globally threatened species.
