Solomon Islands is this week hosting its first ever international forum on endangered species.

The Prime Minister, Gordon Darcy Lilo, opened the forum highlighting the need for countries to realise the importance of protection.

He says Solomon Islands is taking the lead because of its concerns about its own species being lost.

The forum brings together conservationists and environmental workers from around the world.
