Project Summary:
The project will build capacity in Anguilla to reduce the risk of introduction and spread of invasive plant species. Through a programme of “learning by doing”, skill sharing and community involvement five priority invasive plant species will be tackled, with eradication of at least three, and a monitoring programme established for early warning and rapid response. Biosecurity will be strengthened. Lessons learned will be shared with other regional UKOT territories, and an Invasive Plant Strategy developed to guide future work.
