A short five minute film displaying the biosecurity process will be shown on local TV 1 from Wednesday 9 October to Saturday 12 October at 8.pm.

In 1998, the inspection of fresh produce arriving on St Helena was formalised.  The Biosecurity Team’s job is to protect the Island from new invasive species that can have a disastrous effect on St Helena’s crops and agriculture – and perhaps more importantly, on St Helena’s unique species.  

The film depicts shots of the cargo operation at the wharf, the offloading of reefers, inspection of fruits and unpacking at the retailers.
