Declare, Deposit or Pay Campaign

The Declare, Deposit or Pay Campaign, which is being implemented under the Preventing the Costs of Invasive Alien Species (IAS) in Barbados and the OECS Project, will focus on air and sea ports in Barbados and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

A six-month pilot campaign, Declare, Deposit or Pay, is being implemented at air and sea ports, from July to December 2022.

The aim is to safeguard Caribbean biodiversity and protect people and their livelihoods from invasive species by creating an awareness and understanding of IAS and the consequences of deliberately or unintentionally transporting them, thereby gaining the support of travellers in implementing good practices. This means leaving at home any item that poses a biosecurity risk, declaring such items on arrival or disposing of them in designated biosecure bins.
