Abstract

Limited natural resources in the Pacific region are experiencing
increasing exploitation pressure from growing human populations, with
technological advances and over capitalization. Many countries have
designated protected areas to conserve crucial environmental, social
and cultural values. Conservation efforts are generally successful iri
Australia, but unsatisfactory in Pacific Island countries. This study was
aimed at comparing the conservation challenges between. Mount Field
National Park in Tasmania and Komarindi Conservation Area, Solomon
Islands. Tasmania is subject to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands
treaty but not Solomon Islands. Biodiversity issues, management goals, -
actions undertaken with relative outcomes -were determined for
Tasmania and Solomon Islands. The study also -identified the level of
community participation, widely accepted approaches arid principles,
whilst drawing out crucial lessons for future conservation initiatives in
Tasmania and Solomon Islands.
