New weapons in battle against invasive pests

ABC Radio National recently aired a provocative and extremely interesting discussion on the future directions for invasive species control into the future.

“…we all love animals. We’re not killing animals because we like doing that, and so if we had other tools to use, we would be using them but we don’t at present. So we’re locked into this sort of, ‘I’m tied to saving species,’ and so we will continue utilising the current tools that we have until these other tools are essentially available,” Dr Karl Campbell, Programme Director, Island Conservation Galapagos Islands.
