Group Description

Invasive Species Threats in the Caribbean

Many species of animals, plants and even micro-organisms have been introduced to the Caribbean, either accidentally or deliberately, for a variety of reasons. Some introduced species have spread rapidly and represent serious environmental and economic threats. In a few cases, environmental changes may have allowed indigenous species to spread rapidly in a similar way. The risks posed by such “invasive” species are particularly serious on islands. Recent experiences with a number of major invasive pests in the Caribbean have served to emphasize the regional nature of these threats.

We hope that you will take this opportunity to engage in this regional discussion forum, which was initiated by CAB International, with support of The Nature Conservancy. This network seeks to stimulate discussion and facilitate information exchange across the Wider Caribbean on invasive species issues, their impacts and best management practices.
