Project Summary:
St Helena faces significant problems with invasive vertebrates negatively affecting native ecosystems. These hamper conservation and agricultural efforts, including endemic habitat restoration and survival of the Wirebird, the island’s only endemic land bird. This project aims to better understand invasive vertebrate distribution and interactions, leading to community supported control to promote recovery of native species, habitats, and promote agricultural productivity. The St Helena National Trust will collaborate with government, local community and partners to lead efficient, multi-species vertebrate management.
