New animated movie on the invasive potential of the African clawed frog

The INVAXEN project – funded under the BiodivERsA 2012-13 joint call for research proposals on invasive species and biological invasions – won the BiodivERsA Prize for Excellence and Impact and was thus awarded the opportunity to present its work in an animated video.

This prize acknowledges the excellent, pioneering research performed in INVAXEN. The INVAXEN project investigated the biology and invasion patterns of the invasive African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) and worked closely with local stakeholders to improve conservation actions in the field. The Belgian Biodiversity Platform & BiodivERsA led the production of this video, along with the INVAXEN project researchers and the video production company Squarefish.
