The status for migratory species of concern in Oceania is considered poor with a deteriorating regional trend. Population sizes are decreasing for half of the CMS-listed migratory species present in the Pacific. 79% of marine species are at risk, with the status of humpback whales, loggerhead and leatherback turtles being worse in the Pacific than elsewhere in the species' range. 20% of terrestrial species are at risk.
