Early Detection is Key!

Once invasive species have become well established in the region, it is difficult to eradicate them and reverse the impacts they have had on our local ecosystems, the economy, and human health. Preventing their establishment in the first place is the most efficient and effective way to manage new invasive species. Early Detection and Rapid Response is the proactive approach that prevents establishment of species through risk assessment, verification, containment, and eradication. SSISC actively collaborates with partners and the public to detect and eradicate invasive species before they spread beyond control. The species on the right are some of our success stories!
