Help Us Fight Invasive Species
Invasive species hinder the ability of the Idaho Fish and Wildlife Office to attain our Agencies Mission to conserve, enhance, and restore fish, wildlife, and plants for the continuing benefit of the American people. Our goal is to work with others to prevent, identify, contain, control, and eradicate invasive species outbreaks; and to restore the native habitats that have been affected. We aim to effectively and efficiently deal with invasive species outbreaks while causing the least amount of additional harm to native species.
