Stop the Little Fire Ant!
Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme.
The little fire ant, also known as the electric fire ant, is native to central and south America. It has been introduced to many parts of the world including the Pacific Islands. This regional campaign provides an opportunity for partners to leverage off regional television coverage, build their reputation with SPREP's member countries as a key community partner in the Pacific, provide direct support for schools and community livelihoods throughout the region and provide an active platform to promote partner's brand and community engagement.
