At Home:
Preventing the introduction of nonnative species begins at home, largely in the choices we make as consumers. From the plants we grow in our gardens to the animals we bring home as pets, we should learn as much as possible before making a purchase. Visit the Florida Invaders website below for more information about what to know and do -- it provides a good primer about the issues that are at stake.
