CBD COP11: The danger of invasive species, little or large

Daniel Lewis, Grenada Delegation interview: Rio Conventions Pavilion, CBD COP11, 09/10/2012 – Daniel Lewis from the Grenada delegation explains the threat of invasive species. He says these do not have to be large predators to be dangerous with fungi and insects just as damaging.

The island’s banana and plantain industry has been shaken in the past and the Pink Belly Bug nearly destroyed the country’s agriculture sector.

Lewis says that it is not just the economy but also the island’s culture that is “intrinsically intertwined with our biodiversity”.
