Thank you for your interest in taking on the challenge of invasive species. If you think you’ve seen an invasive species, please report a sighting! Early detection and response are especially important to successfully managing an invasive species. Record where you saw the species and, if possible, take photos of the species and its location. This will help to identify the species and evaluate the risk.
