Purpose: DESCRIPTION: Remarkably, many global conservation success-stories originate from Seychelles and Mauritius. However propagating these much-needed skill-sets elsewhere doesn’t happen naturally, particularly across low-income and island nations. Building upon previous Darwin-funded success, we will implement three flycatcher reintroductions, and via a newly-established regional ‘training hub’, galvanise skill-sharing between four Indian Ocean countries. PURPOSE: Increased capacity to conserve Indian Ocean species and habitats through skill-sharing, capacity-building and in-situ learning on three reintroduction and habitat restoration initiatives for two endemic birds enabling their reduced extinction-risk.
