An international conference with the title "Island Invasives: Eradication and Management" is planned to be held on the Tamaki Conference, University of Auckland, New Zealand from 8-12 February 2010.

 The conference will follow on from two previous conferences held in New Zealand on this broad theme: "Ecological Restoration of New Zealand Islands" in 1989 and "Eradication of Island Invasives and Ecology of Insular Biotas" in 2001.

The conference is an initiative of the Centre for Biodiversity and Biosecurity, run jointly by Landcare Research and the University of Auckland.

ACAP has the control and eradication of invasive species on islands that support breeding populations of listed species as an aim of its Action Plan.
