Purpose: DESCRIPTION: Redonda has been independently recognised as the Caribbean’s priority island for restoration. Feral goats and rats are driving deforestation, desertification and the extinction of endemic and threatened biodiversity. This innovative project will build capacity, fully remove the aliens and protect this unique island to expedite its reforestation and ecological recovery. PURPOSE: The permanent removal of harmful invasive species triggers the recovery of endemic species, habitats and ecological processes on Redonda, and enhances Antigua & Barbuda’s natural capital and conservation capacity.
