The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Environment Fund (SVGEF) will be working with SusGren to fund the second phase of the “Protecting Ashton Lagoon’s Biodiversity through the Eradication of Invasive Species” project, in the sum of US$19,358.89. 

Frigate Island is a small, hilly, gem of the Southern Grenadines connected to Union Island by the Ashton Lagoon causeway. 

The island is a wildlife reserve, administered by the SVG National Trust. 

A biodiversity survey for Frigate Island conducted in May 2021 found that the presence of rats on the island is deleterious to the fauna of the island.
