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.
Watch the animations 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.
