Webinar: Successful Efforts in Stopping Aquatic Invasive Species from the Pet and Pond Trades

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
2:00 p.m. CDT

Registration for the webinar: http://bit.ly/2KurygX

Summary:

This Current webinar from the North Central Water Network features Extension and Sea Grant professionals from around the region on their successful efforts and lessons learned in blocking invasive aquatic species from the pet and pond trades.

Invasive aquatic plants and animals introduced through trade channels pose a significant threat to natural ecosystems. Invasive organisms can be released into waterways or escape from private ponds and water gardens. Invasive aquatic species can also be included in shipments to vendors and consumers via “hitchhiking” organisms or mislabeling.

Featured speakers include Doug Jensen of the University of Minnesota Sea Grant, Tim Campbell of the University of Wisconsin-Extension, Paige Filice of Michigan State University Extension and Greg Hitzroth of Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant.
