Saving Species on Islands
In this new collaborative Threatened Species Recovery Hub (NESP) project that Kark is leading, we examine spatial patterns and processes, as well as management strategies of invasive and threatened vertebrates across Australia’s islands. We are working on both large scale patterns for islands across Australian states, and on specific case study islands (such as Stradbroke Island, Norfolk Island, Macquarie Island, Kimberley Islands of WA and others, aiming to bring together scientists, managers, experts and other stockholders to share their successes and experience across regions and enhance island environmental conservation and trade offs.
