The various impacts of invasive species – economic, environmental and social – affect all British Columbians. So we all have plenty at stake and slowing the spread of invasive species and mitigating their impacts is something we can all help with by taking action wherever we find ourselves.
The choices you make at home, at work, within your community and the outdoors, and even while you're travelling can have a lasting impact on your neighbourhood and beyond. Here are resources and easy steps you can take to help protect BC's valuable natural resources from the harmful impacts of invasive species.
Early detection is critical to stopping the spread of invasive species. You can help detect and locate new infestations of invasive species, particularly those capable of significant environmental or economic harm. If you see a plant that looks ‘out of place’ or a creature you don’t recognize and have concerns about, we encourage you to report it
