What are the Top Global Invasive Species?

  • Select one species from the interactive image above or from the text list that has not been selected already by another classmate (check what has been posted already)*.  Research your chosen species and answer the following questions:
    • What is the common and scientific name of your organisms?
    • Where are the organisms originally found? How did this species become invasive?
    • What type and how much damage does the species cause?
    • What characteristics about the species make them successful invasive species?
    • What efforts are underway to prevent the spread and/or eradicate the species?
    • In your opinion, what is the future of this species and the ecosystems?
  • ​*Another option is to choose your own species not on the list and add it to the Thinglink interactive figure.
