islandNet

Offshore Islands Network

Australia’s 8,300 islands provide homes for many of our unique animals and plants, including nine mammals no longer found on the mainland. Invasive animals, such as exotic rodents, account for over half of the nation’s bird extinctions and infest over 100 islands.

To safeguard island life, numerous island eradication projects are underway or in planning. IslandNet aims to facilitate this conservation management of Australia’s offshore islands by sharing knowledge between people interested in island conservation.
