A Message of Hope for Endangered Island Wildlife

For almost 25 years, Island Conservation’s work has been a bright spot that provides a touch of hope for endangered island wildlife.

Islands are home to almost half of the world’s highly threatened species, most of which are threatened in part by invasive species. Luckily, there is hope.

Over the past almost 25 years, Island Conservation has worked on islands around the world to remove invasive species to benefit native wildlife. In this time, we have successfully restored 63 islands benefiting 1,173 populations of 468 species and subspecies.

On islands all around the world our work has shown that by removing invasive species from an island, native species can thrive and even return from the brink of extinction. On Hawadax Island, Alaska, invasive rats threatened native seabird populations. Five years after the removal of invasive species, not only were native seabirds returning, but also Tufted Puffins which had never before been seen on the island. In the Galápagos, on Pinzón Island, the removal of invasive rats led to the first tortoise hatchlings to survive in the wild in over 150 years.

Although the world is on the verge of a mass extinction crisis, islands restoration brings hope for endangered wildlife. Island conservation supporter and novelist, Jonathan Franzen explains:

If you want to do something for biodiversity, this is how you do it. The need is urgent and the goals are achievable.”

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.
