Pacific protected areas - protecting our natural heritage for future generations


The Pacific has a one of the highest rates of species extinctions of any region in the world especially birds, and in recent history islands have had 80% of all known species extinctions.


Our global target for protected areas is the conservation and effective management of 10% of coastal and marine and 17% of terrestrial areas.
