ISLANDS ARE BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOTS

Islands represent the greatest concentration of both biodiversity and species extinctions. Island species are often evolutionarily distinctive and highly vulnerable to novel disturbances, particularly invasive species.

There are ~465,000 islands in the world

Islands comprise 5.3% of the earth’s terrestrial area

ISLANDS ARE EXTINCTION EPICENTERS

75% of reptile, bird, amphibian, and mammal extinctions combined have occurred on islands

INVASIVE SPECIES

Invasive species, which primarily spread around the globe via human transportation systems, are a leading cause of extinctions on islands and biodiversity loss globally. As the threats of extinctions are highest on islands, so are our opportunities to save species at risk. We must act now to save island species before they are lost forever.

Invasive Species are Implicated in 86% of all recorded extinctions on islands

Are a key threat to island plants and animals. Invasive mammals such as pigs, goats, cats, and rats are among the most damaging due to predation and habitat destruction.

ISLANDS OFFER HOPE

Restoring islands by eradicating invasive mammals has repeatedly proven to be a high impact conservation action

Pinzón Giant Tortoise hatchlings survive for the first time in 150 years after rat eradication

Biologists document a 5,000% increase in native tree recruitment on Palmyra Atoll after rat eradication
Scripps’s Murrelets on Anacapa Island rebounded with a threefold increase in hatching success following the eradication of invasive rodents

More than 1,200 invasive mammal eradications have been attempted on islands worldwide, with an average success rate of 85%
