Features Overview

With over 2500 lakes in New Brunswick, the task of preventing the spread of invasive plant species in New Brunswick freshwater is a serious environmental challenge. Invasive plants are moved about in complex and often unseen ways. The speed which a new invasive species can explode into an ecologically and economically disastrous infestation is well documented. Once an invader is well established, eradication is extremely difficult and costly, if not impossible.

Prevention is the first step to fighting this invasion, but no matter how comprehensive and aggressive the prevention effort is, chances are some invasive organisms will slip through the cracks. In such cases, it is crucial that the invaders are detected as early as possible, before they have had an opportunity to cause significant damage or to spread to other waterbodies. Early detection provides the best hope of eradication.

In 2015-2016, the NBALA received funding from the New Brunswick Environmental Trust Fund (ETF) to establish an Invasive Plant Patrol (IPP) Program in New Brunswick.
