New Resource on Invasive Species

The National Environmental Coalition on Invasive Species (NECIS) was established in 2003 and is comprised of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to fighting invasive species. It is led by scientists, lawyers, activists, and advocates. Recently, NECIS launched a redesigned website covering invasive species. This resource gathers news and information about invasive species with updates about national policies and initiatives. The site is aimed to improve communication between member groups and the public and prevent the further spread of invasive species in the United States.

For further reading on invasive species, see the Water Library’s recommended reading list.
