Fighting to conserve native flora and fauna

The Department of Natural Resources and the Environment's invasive species programs are focused on researching invasive species that threaten New York State. Invasive species are the second largest threat to biodiversity after habitat loss. These programs work to deliver emerging information to professional land managers, state and federal agencies, government officials, and concerned citizens in order to mitigate critical ecological challenges.
