Floreana, the most southerly island in the Galápagos, is home to many endemic species under threat from invasive predators.
Our work in the Galápagos began in 2004, when we collaborated with the Charles Darwin Foundation and Galápagos National Park to help prevent the extinction of the mangrove finch, which at the time was the Galápagos' rarest bird.
We're now working with Island Conservation (IC), Galápagos National Park and Galápagos Conservation Trust (GCT) on plans to eradicate invasive predators from Floreana, using our knowledge from previous eradication programmes on other islands. By removing invasive animals from Floreana, we hope endemic species like the Floreana mockingbird, Floreana tortoise and Galápagos racer can be reintroduced to the island.
