The Trust hopes to make available on this site as much information as possible to assist people with their interest in the island and its affairs. This is particularly aimed at the teachers and students on the island. We hope that here they can find local examples of informative data instead of having to rely on that from elsewhere in the world.
Publications will include those produced by the Trust and its projects, in addition to any others deemed appropriate and with permission from their authors. They will be made available in .pdf format or PowerPoint Presentations for use in furthering the conservation of the island’s environment, cultural and historical heritage.
Please help yourself, and please acknowledge all the hard work that has gone into their production and the support given by our sponsors.
The St Helena Invertebrate Conservation Strategy is the product of a two day workshop involving key international and St Helenian stakeholders as part of the Darwin initiative funded project. The core objective of the workshop was to produce a best practice strategy for conserving St Helena’s terrestrial invertebrates for 5 years from 2016 to 2021. The resulting strategy that was developed is: Cairns-Wicks R. Jervois M., & Kindemba V. (2016) St Helena Invertebrate Conservation Strategy 2016-2021. St Helena National Trust, Environmental Management Division of St Helena Government and Buglife. St Helena, South Atlantic Island. The vision for the strategy is ‘St Helena’s unique invertebrates are recognised as globally significant and locally valued; and the habitats upon which they rely are understood, secured and improved for future generations’. It can be downloaded here:
A report on non-native invasive species on St Helena and their possible control, chapters from the new guide to St Helena’s invertebrates and a few test keys can be found here; a link to further data that has been placed on-line by the St Helena National Trust can be found here.
