how did the environment have been abused in the pacific islands



  1. 0 Votes

    The Pacific Islands, collectively called Oceania, are no stranger to environmental issues. The Pacific Islands Environmental Outlook of 1999 states that the most pressing issues are loss of biological diversity; threats to freshwater resources; degradation of coastal environments; climate change and sea level rise; and land and sea based pollution. Because these islands are isolated from the rest of the world, many animal and plant species are unique to these areas. Therefore, any kind of environmental change makes the species vulnerable. A rapid population growth has contributed to the depletion of natural resources (land, forests, and fisheries) and other resources. Natural disasters also cause damage to the environment.
