Curacao is a computer program that simulates the sterile insect release method and allows the user to investigate the effects of several variables on the effectiveness of the method and what happens when some of the basic assumptions of the model are relaxed or violated in some way. The user should gain some understanding of the sorts of things that complicate the application of the technique in situations that are more realistic than those assumed by Knipling in his simple analyses.
