Invasive Species on the Andaman Islands

Invasive Species on the Andaman Islands

Josh Donlan recently returned from India where he was working with Indian scientists and the local NGO Andaman and Nicobar Environment Team. On the Andaman Islands, Josh participated in a workshop focused on invasive herbivores, their impacts on the Andaman Islands, and potential management options. The workshop was well received, including active participation by the Department of Forestry and Conservation. ACS is assisting with next steps, which include moving forward on a feasibility study and a demonstration project focused on the management of invasive herbivores.
