Exotic plants and animals impair military operations and put America's natural heritage in danger

National Wildlife Federation
October 18, 2005

Washington, DC - Invasive species are infiltrating military lands across the country, severely impacting the health and welfare of U.S. military forces, citizens and ecosystems, according to a new National Wildlife Federation report.

"Terrorists or natural disasters jump to mind when picturing threats to military readiness and homeland security," says Heidi Hirsh, Natural Resource Specialist at the U.S. Marine Headquarters in Washington, DC. "But few people realize that we also face the threat of nonhuman invaders. Invasive species are silently becoming entrenched in our ecosystems and pose a real threat to military facilities and readiness across the country."
