The status, trends and threats of Kiribati’s biodiversity are summarised in this report. It also illustrates how biodiversity conservation and management are mainstreamed across different sectors to effectively address different biodiversity conservation and management issues
This plan covers the operations to eradicate feral cats (Felis catus) from Malden Island, an uninhabited Wildlife Sanctuary within the southern Line Island group, part of the Republic of Kiribati.
The Government of Kiribati selected Abaiang and Tabiteuea North from a group of atolls considered ‘most vulnerable’. Then due to factors such as the inland shift of 80 metres of the coastline threatening Tebunginako village and the comparatively large population size and proximity to Tarawa, Abaiang was selected as the first atoll for the Whole of Island approach to take place.

Marine Managed Areas - MPA Mapping
To maintain long-term ocean health, we need marine managed areas to ensure that special places and life forms are available for future generations. This interactive mapping application provides detailed information on over 7,000 managed saltwater and coastal areas worldwide.
Managed areas in the High Seas help maintain long-term ocean health by protecting important habitats and the marine organisms that depend on them. This interactive map provides detailed information on different types protected areas beyond national jurisdiction, including treaty areas, regulated management and protected areas, and unregulated areas in need of protection.
