Cooperative initiative on invasive alien species on islands

The Cooperative initiative on Invasive Alien Species on Islands (the ‘Cooperative Islands Initiative’) is a joint initiative of IUCN’s Invasive Species Specialist Group and the New Zealand Government, under the umbrella of the Global Invasive Species Programme (GISP).

A wide range of species have invaded and colonised new sites. Islands are especially vulnerable to invasive alien species (IAS) and dramatic ecological impacts have been attributed to IAS on islands.
