    A recent study suggests that invasive reptiles and amphibians have cost the global economy more than $17 billion US between 1986 and 2020. The study was published in the journal Scientific Reports.

    It says the transportation of “alien species” into new areas is increasing at an alarming rate due to globalization of human activity. This can lead to species invasions and extinctions of indigenous species, damage to ecosystems and major economic impacts. 

    The lead author and PhD student Ismael Soto said it is “almost impossible” to list all the ways invasive species can affect an economy. The economic costs can reach as far as the real estate market. This is because invasive species can become a pest that is :impossible to live near.”
