The tropical Indo-pacific is recognized as the world's most diverse marine environment, but its size and remoteness present challenges for documentation and studying biodiversity. This project will build on the protocols, tools and growing network of collaborators established by the Diversity of the Indo-Pacific Network and VertNet to mobilize biodiversity data and identify conservation priorities in Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.
