Education Video Series

Experts Explain It & Education Animations

Invasive species come in many forms and from many places. When introduced to an environment, an invasive species can quickly cause that environment to spin out of balance. Aquatic invasive species, invasive terrestrial weeds, bullfrogs, forest pests  are just a few examples of how species can live relatively quietly in their native range but wreak havoc when moved into a new environment. animations

Watch the animation for quick takes on invasive species, or watch the experts explain their fields in more detail. Below each video, we’ve included education packets to augment learning for fourth, fifth and sixth graders.

In this video series, we speak with three experts who have committed themselves to understanding the problems different kinds of invasive species pose. They answer common questions about what their jobs entail and why they study the species they study. They also explain why invasive species are such a problem, how invasive species affect Montana and its residents, and what we can all do to stop the spread of invasive species. Below each video, we’ve included education packets to augment learning for fourth, fifth and sixth graders.
