Invasive plants and animals are most often defined as introduced species that adversely affect the habitats they invade economically, environmentally and ecologically. While all species compete to survive, invasive species seem to have one or more traits that allow them to out-compete native species. Florida has been severely impacted by invasive species. In the Everglades alone, control of invasive species cost $500 million a year. The object of this mission is to help identify the many invasive plant and animal species found in Florida and share information about how they can be controlled.
