Summary

“Adopt a Home for Wildlife” (already successfully piloted) enables Montserratians to undertake informed decisions and actions on land they manage, via training and advice to 100 individuals, so Montserrat’s unique wildlife and ecosystems thrive. Livelihoods, based on sustainable-use of natural resources (e.g. food-security, low-impact ecotourism), are demonstrated and promoted. A network of community-led managed conservation areas, covering 100ha, established, stimulating action and engagement among 3,000 Montserratians, addressing urgent challenges to the islands’ biodiversity (e.g. invasive plants displacing native species).
