Determine the feasibility of managing (including eradicating) invasive alien rats on East Rennell in Solomon Islands, protecting sensitive species and habitats including the World Heritage Area (WHA). The project will establish a baseline among key biological indicators as a means of tracking the condition of the WHA. It will also, identify mechanisms for preventing future harmful invasive alien species introductions to East Rennell.
