What should be done about invasive species?
dean at Allan Hancock College
“We should recognize that species evolve over time and adapt to their environment whether predator or prey. The introduction of invasive species interrupts these biological phenomenon in harmful ways for which there is no natural adaptive response process. It is irresponsible to introduce invasive species and irresponsible to ignore the consequences.”
“We should get rid of them. They’re making us—and our environment—unhealthy."
“I really feel strongly that we have to do more research. There is so much we don’t know, and we don’t want to find out the side effects after the damage has been done.”

“We should try natural ways instead of invasive, but just getting rid of them may have a huge impact we are unaware of.”
