Abating the threat from IAS: The Nature Conservancy’s invasive species initiative

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) recognizes that many of its conservation achievements are at risk due to IAS. It has established a major Invasive Species Initiative (ISI) which will cover nearly 30 countries in which TNC is active, engage local communities, and address the need for more taxonomic information.

The overarching goal of the Initiative is to reduce and manage the threat to biological diversity, and reduce the concomitant social costs, caused by non-native organisms invading ecosystems. Both the social and biological components are paramount to the Initiative.
