Project Summary:
Ulithi Atoll provides important nesting habitat for green sea turtles, native birds and endemic reptiles and is home to 1,000 people. Two introduced and invasive species, the black rat and the mangrove monitor lizard, are present on Loosiep Island, a primary turtle nesting island of Ulithi Atoll. Here, these invasive species have detrimentally impacted native biodiversity and horticulture. This project will remove invasive species from Loosiep, recover biodiversity and improve food security and quality for Ulithi’s subsistence community. Removal of harmful invasive species will result in native and endemic species recovery and improved conditions for horticulture, resulting in increased food security for the community.
