Cape Breton isn't the only area concerned about invasive species. There are a number of other areas concerned about them too! Here are some interesting links to what other groups are doing:
- Fundy National Park hosts a "Crab Nab" to track populations of crabs. Read more here: http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/nb/fundy/ne/ne8_e.asp
- To celebrate the United Nations' International Day for Biological Diversity, the Government of Canada is now offering Canadians an online gateway to information on invasive species. To explore the web portal visit: www.invasivespecies.gc.ca .
Invasive Species Worldwide!
Invasive species are not limited to Canada. They are an international problem and therefore, there are many organizations trying to stop the spread of aliens.
