This dataset shows possible priority pest eradication sites for Samoa. The sites identified have already experienced eradication projects in the past but the target pest species, Rattus exulans, have re-established. Future eradication work needs to be done but with more effective biosecurity measures put in place to avoid re-establishment. **Please note that this is not an official dataset**

In 2006, Papua New Guinea formally nominated seven identified areas for the World Heritage Tentative Listing. To date, none of these areas has been nominated to the World Heritage List. This desktop review examines the seven sites on the Papua New Guinea World Heritage Tentative list and reports on the current knowledge, condition and threats to each of these sites; as well as recommendations made to address identified issues and provide guidance for advancing the "processes of identification, protection, conservation, presentation and rehabilitation of this heritage".

Invasive species, particularly animals, are being eradicated from islands at ever more ambitious scales. In order to protect island biodiversity and the essential ecosystem functions that it provides, however, plant invasions should be given more management attention. While many advances have been made, plant eradication is inherently more difficult than animal eradication due to persistent seed banks, and eradication may not be possible for more extensive populations.

Protected areas are key to biodiversity conservation. While the value of protected areas is generally undisputed, challenges remain. Many areas designated as protected were created for
objectives other than biodiversity conservation, and those objectives can conflict with biodiversity
conservation. Protected area legal status is, in many cases, impermanent. Protected areas are
generally too small, isolated, and few to conserve biodiversity on their own, and thus there are calls

People live in nature. However, substantial evidence confirms that, under the pressure of anthropogenic alteration, nature is being fragmented, imperiled and becoming less able to provide essential services. Biodiversity loss is the most significant signal of this depletion, and could profoundly impact the future of human beings and the rest of life on Earth.
