Invasive species can have significant impacts on Indigenous communities and cultural practices; stewardship of the land and environment has long been important to Indigenous communities. Invasive species can have impacts on ways of life by threatening wildlife, plants, fish and beach foods that are harvested by Indigenous communities. This is why ISCBC is committed to supporting communities in addressing invasive species.
In collaboration with our Indigenous partners, ISCBC has developed and continues to develop resources to support communities in learning about and addressing invasives species. If you are looking for information, resources, or activities please visit Indigenous Resources.
The Indigenous Invasive Species Network (IISN) co-ordinates meetings and communications between Indigenous Communities and organizations in BC; while holding regular conference calls to discuss current programs, projects, and issues around invasive species as related to Indigenous communities.
