So what's the problem?
Invasive species are plants, animals or microorganisms not native to an ecosystem, whose introduction is threatening biodiversity, food security, health or economic development. Islands, with their diverse but delicate ecosystems are particularly at risk from invasive alien species which can do great damage to the native biodiversity. In the Caribbean invasive alien species are a major threat to the vulnerable marine, freshwater and terrestrial biodiversity of the many islands, and to the people depending on this biodiversity for their livelihoods and wellbeing.
What is this project doing?
CABI is coordinating the project and is working with a multitude of partners from island nations across the insular Caribbean.
