Invasive species (exotic insects, plants, fish, birds, mammals and many other organisms) are a serious threat to our homes, environment and economy. The Indiana Invasive Species Council (IISC) was established by the state legislature to enhance the ability of government agencies to detect, prevent, monitor, and manage new and long established invasions, as well as increase public awareness about these growing threats.
Learn more about the council, government and non-government agencies concerned with invasive species, and about the invaders themselves by exploring the links on this website.
The council is here to work on invasive species threat on behalf of all of us. You can help by reporting any unusual plants or animals you come across in the state to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources or to your local county Extension educator.
Working together, we can slow the spread and thwart the impact of invasive species in Indiana and beyond.
