Island conservation is where Rebecca’s interests lie, in particular with threatened species management on islands. Her project was reviewing the progress made towards implementing island conservation commitments made by island nations and nations with islands in the context of the Global Island Partnership (GLISPA). The project examined the weaknesses and strengths effecting implementation, with consideration to both national and regional scale delivery models. The project aimed to inform island practitioners and decision makers to effect island conservation commitments.
