invasive alien species

Video of Little Fire Ant, Wasmania auropunctata, Regional Alian Invasive Species Project funded by Global Environmental Facility - Pacific Alliance for education of the problems they cause to the community; instructions on eradication by baiting of Little Fire Ants on Vanuatu described and recommendation of best investiment and management for alien invasive species is to have quarantine and biosecurity systems in place with trained personnel and resources to prevent the spread of alien invasive species coming into the country and spreading within the country.

This guide is intended to be used by those working in biosecurity and plant health, and by all those interested in preserving the unique environments and biodiversity found in the Caribbean UKOTs. The guide will not enable the user to identify to species all the invasive invertebrate plant pests that they may encounter, but it does provide advice on how to collect and preserve specimens for further study and where to seek assistance.

This is a generic document which can be adapted to the needs of any territory

The purpose of this guide is to provide simple factsheets on priority invasive alien pests that currently threaten plant health, human health and/or biodiversity in the Pitcairn Islands (Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands), a UK Overseas Territory located in the southern Pacific Ocean. It also identifies the main pathways of introduction so that biosecurity inspections can be targeted. The guide is intended to be used by those working in biosecurity, and by all those interested in preserving the unique environments and biodiversity found in the Pitcairn Islands.

Australia can’t afford to allow in any more insect colonists like red imported fire ants, electric ants, browsing ants, yellow crazy ants, Argentine ants, African big-headed ants, Asian honeybees, large earth bumblebees and German wasps. These invaders are costing both the Australian environment and economy dearly. Hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent on Australia-wide eradications of red fire ants, electric ants and browsing ants because of their potential for devastating harm to wildlife and impacts on people.

This guide is to provide a methodology and action plan to rapidly detect newly introducted non-native potentially invasive plant species so that they can be eradicated before they have a chance to establish themselves.

Le Centre assure l’élaboration de méthodes, le développement de formations, la capitalisation des connaissances et la diffusion de savoir-faire et de bonnes pratiques. Il consacre ainsi son activité à toutes les EEE de faune et de flore, en milieux terrestres, marins et d’eau douce, en métropole comme en outre-mer.

This guide is intended to be used by those working in biosecurity, with the aim of empowering the Biosecurity Officer and other government officers in South Georgia to rapidly detect nonnative species of terrestrial invertebrates caught on sticky traps. It is not intended to enable government staff to identify terrestrial invertebrates to species level, for this further assistance will be required from a relevant specialist, but it will help staff to detect and prioritise potential invasive species.

In 2016 the project Tackling Invasive Non-Native Species in the UK Overseas Territories was initiated, funded through the FCO’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF). The project objective is “to improve the biosecurity of the OTs against invasive non-native species to improve their environmental resilience and food security; achieved through reducing the risk and impact of invasion and natural hazards via technical assistance and capacity building”.
