Protecting Canada’s land and water from invasive species
The Invasive Species Centre supports the new regulations and strategy put in place by the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, which effectively place more tools in the toolbox toward our collective efforts to prevent and slow the spread of invasive species.
EDDMapS is a web-based mapping system for documenting invasive species distribution. It is fast, easy to use and doesn’t require Geographic Information Systems experience. EDDMapS’ goal is to maximize the effectiveness and accessibility of the immense numbers of invasive species observations recorded each year, and you can help by reporting sightings of invasive species!
