Invasive Species & Biodiversity

From Zebra Mussels to Asian Carp, invasive species threaten the ecological and economic health of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Region.

The Cities Initiative collaborates on efforts to prevent Asian Carp from entering the Great Lakes, and has also issued a resolution on the threat of the invasive reed Phragmites australis. See the left-hand navigation for more information on both of these projects.
