What does it take to eradicate invasive species from islands?

Wednesday 21 April 20:00 BST / 09:00 HST / 15:00 EDT

by Dr Patricia Baiao, Island Conservation

Islands offer incredible opportunities for the complete removal of damaging invasive species and eradication is a proven tool that has been used all around the world with inspiring outcomes for native species and ecosystems. The principles of eradication have been derived from projects worldwide and applied broadly, but each eradication is nested within complex social-political contexts that need to be incorporated into planning and implementation.

This workshop is sponsored by Wildlife Acoustics.
