Invasive species are a constant challenge to the protection of our natural resources. Due to limited resources, eradication is not feasible for every project, species, or location. Economic and ecological cost may outweigh the benefits of a control project. NYNHP works with state partners to develop prioritization tools that help managers decide which invasive species management efforts will have the best outcomes.
Where are invasive species likely to spread and have a high impact?
NYNHP developed map models to help prioritize resources for early detection and invasive species control. The resulting map highlights areas with high ecological value and risk of invasive spread.
