Biodiversity Conservation on a Newly-formed Island

Island Conservation

Publication Date

Four years ago, an island was erected out of what seemed like thin air. In a desolate place once only greeted by the sound of crashing waves and an occasional seabird, a formation of rock protruded outwards and upwards. The new island is officially nameless but has been coined Hunga Ha’apai (Hunga Tonga) by the locals. The island has sprawled up amidst two existing islands within the Kingdom of Tonga in the South Pacific, a region where a number of conservation projects have been carried out.
