Environment
Christmas Island is tropical, and largely covered by rainforest.1 The rainy season lasts from December to April each year.2 411 plant species are found on the island, of which 18 are native to Christmas island.3 Several endangered animal species also live on the island.4 The loss of rainforest and the effects of phosphate mining are the primary environmental concerns of the island.5 In 2012, Australia issued an Emergency Management Ordinance to help establish necessary management arrangements for Christmas Island with assistance from the Australian government.6 This ordinance provided a legislative basis for emergency relief efforts.7 An emergency is deemed as any situation in which “Extraordinary measures are required to prevent or minimize any of the following: Loss of life of humans or animals; Illness of, ...See More or injury to, humans or animals; Property loss or damage; Damage to the environment.”8 Show Less
