Washington’s Integrated Approach to Preventing and Addressing Invasive Species
September 30 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am
Invasive species, whether aquatic or terrestrial plants, animals, insects, or pathogens, threaten Washington’s community health, recreational opportunities, agriculture, and other economic and environmental factors. At a national level, the costs to prevent, monitor, and control invasive species, combined with the damage to crops, fisheries, forests, and other resources, cost the nation an estimated $1.2 trillion over the past 50 years. Closer to home, the introduction and spread of just 22 invasive species in Washington equates to more than $1 billion in damage and loss.
