Not good for Samoa

Re: Problem with coconuts 

That is very scary. 

The population of healthy coconuts from Samoa is now under threat by pests and diseases that got introduced to the region by whom? 

That’s the question. 

Who brought the pests and diseases into the region? 

I thought you already have quarantine in place to counter these diseases.

Who introduced these? 

Australia and New Zealand are very strict about anything from the islands to enter the country.

This is not good people; we don’t want to lose our tree of life do we?
