Protecting Canada’s land and water from invasive species
Did you know invasive species could be threatening your lake? Action is needed to protect inland lakes that are free from or at high risk of aquatic invasion.
Also be sure to enter our photo contest and tell us how or why you are preventing, detecting, and monitoring for aquatic invasive species in your favourite lakes! Submit your photo by August 31.
EDDMapS is a web-based mapping system for documenting invasive species distribution. It is fast, easy to use and doesn’t require Geographic Information Systems experience. EDDMapS’ goal is to maximize the effectiveness and accessibility of the immense numbers of invasive species observations recorded each year, and you can help by reporting sightings of invasive species!
