Where PILN works
Invasive plants and animals can disrupt natural cycles, crowd out
native species, and cause billions of dollars in damage.
The Pacific Island Invasives Learning Network will build the skills
of multi-agency teams in the Pacific to address the threats posed
by invasive species.
To empower effective invasive species management through a participant-driven
network that meets priority needs, rapidly shares skills and resources,
provides links to technical expertise, increases information exchange,
and accelerates on-the-ground action.
- PILN team members strengthen essential technical, organizational,
collaborative and policy skills to advance invasive species management
in the Pacific Islands.
- PILN teams demonstrate on-the-ground action against invasive
alien species and rapidly share their experiences, skills and
- PILN team members work cooperatively on high priority local
and national invasive species issues.
- PILN teams collaborate in addressing at least one critical regional
invasive issue or opportunity.
Any queries or comments can be addressed to the PILN Coordinator
