The effects of COVID-19 are being felt as far away as the remote Pacific islands where governments have shut down travel and transport to prevent arrival of the virus. Unfortunately, this is not the only problem the island states are facing. Increasing storms and sea level rise, are a consequence of climate change. Invasive pests, like the coconut rhinoceros beetle (CRB) (Oryctes rhinoceros), are highly damaging on vulnerable islands.
