Invasive plants and insects

The natural beauty of our home is unparalleled. Our ocean, rivers, forests, and mountains form an interconnected system that supports a wide range of habitat for animals and fish.

But the impacts of human use, the effects of climate change, natural disturbances such as wind and disease, and the introduction of invasive species are slowly degrading some habitat and the important functions they provide.

We are carefully managing these diverse ecosystems to maintain their ecological integrity and biodiversity.
