Valuing and Conserving Nature
Supporting Pacific Island countries to conserve Oceania's unique biodiversity.
The biodiversity of the Oceania region is characterised by exceptionally high levels of endemism and species diversity, underpinning ecosystem functioning and the provision of ecosystem services, and supporting the daily livelihoods of millions of people. IUCN Oceania supports governments, Members and communities to strengthen capacity for the sustainable management and conservation of the species and ecosystems of Oceania, and to address the major drivers of biodiversity loss.
