• Who we are

    We are a flourishing network of seven national organisations supported by a small BirdLife Secretariat in Fiji, and all the local people that we work with along the way. Read more about BirdLife Pacific.


  • What we do

    We implement conservation projects across the Pacific region, with a particular focus on restoring oceanic islands to their former glory by removing invasive species. Read more about our programmes.


  • Where we work

    Like the vast Pacific Ocean, our work unites the legendary island groups of Polynesia and Micronesia, continental Australia, and diverse Melanesia. Read more about our work.


  • Support us

    A small population of humans has done incredible damage in the past. Now we are an even smaller group of people working hard to restore nature in the Pacific. And we want your help. Read about how you can support us.
