Invasive Species New Web Site
People who want to learn about the top 50 plants, animals and diseases threatening Washington’s natural environment and economy have a new online resource, the Washington Invasive Species Council’s W.I.S.E. Web site. This week, the statewide council launched the new Washington Invasive Species Education (W.I.S.E.) Web site with the goal of educating people about invasive species and the damage they can do to the environment and economy, how invasive species spread and how everyone can help stop them. The Web site can be found at: www.wise.wa.gov/.
“By giving people information about invasive species, we hope they will help us prevent their spread and reduce the damage they cause,” said Bill Tweit, council chairman. “The Web site makes it easy for people to know what species to be on the lookout for when they are hiking, boating or just having fun outdoors.”
