Dataset with Pacific related resources and direct internet link to the Birdlife Online data portal. 'Birdlife' is a global partnership of conservation organizations that strives to conserve birds, their habitats, and global biodiversity. Its priorities include preventing extinction of bird species, identifying and safeguarding important sites for birds, maintaining and restoring key bird habitats, and empowering conservationists worldwide.
This report summarizes the work being carried out by parties to the Pacific working group for bird conservation. The purpose of the meeting was to review the conservation status of all Pacific birds, based on studies conducted by BirdLife International and Government agencies, to determine threats, what work has been undertaken and what still needs to be done, and to use this information to contribute to the development of the new Action Strategy.

Throughout this paper, the authors have taken a regional approach, pioneered by Weisler (1996), that allowed them to understand the contrasting settlement patterns on two adjacent “mystery islands”. In their view, wet Tabuaeran was the primary locus of settlement, with dry Kiritimati acting as a peripheral base for specialized activities. This analysis challenges the prevailing “mystery island” paradigm which focuses on resource scarcity and isolation.
These guidelines provide a framework for bird species monitoring and invasive species surveillance at Kiritimati.
