Management Action-Biosecurity

Report on the invasive species in the Caribbean, by IUCN, documenting the environmental crises and how to manage impacts on the natural island biodiversity and carrying out successful eradication.

Invasive species pose one of the greatest ecological threats to America’s lands and waters. Their control can be complex and expensive and is often conducted in perpetuity; their harm can be irreversible. Early detection and rapid response (EDRR) actions can reduce the long-term costs and economic burden that invasive species have on communities.
