Non-native invasive plants and animals are one of the leading threats to native biodiversity around the world.

They can negatively affect property values, agricultural productivity, public utilities, fisheries, tourism, outdoor recreation, and ecosystem function, and are estimated to cost the United States as much as $120 billion in economic damages and control measures each year.

NOTE: Appropriate for ages 12 and up.

Instructor: UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County educator
