The 90-Day Plan: DAY 10

DAY 10

Eighty-percent of the biomass (life) in the Mississippi River is from invasive species, particularly Asian Carp.  It is time to get SERIOUS ABOUT 

INVASIVE SPECIES!  An invasive species is a plant or animal non-native to the area that takes over.

Challenge:  Describe one way how pollution, fertilizer runoff, and habitat loss each weakens native species.   What are common ways invasives species are introduced?  What can you do to minimize further damage from invasives?

For More Information:

The National Number to report invasive species: (877) 786-7267
