Environmental Invaders
by: Leanne Paden

They originate from North America
They are pest to the food source and endangering other animals
They also damage the ecosystem costing money .
We do little things such as prevention of nesting and any other invasion but nothing I have researched tells me other ways

Giant African Snails
They come from South America
They reproduce too quickly and food supply is short because of the rodents .
There is an organization called Coast wide Nutria Control Program that is decreasing the invasion of the Nutria .
From North America
Threats to small game and humans
Most people hunt and kill them themselves I have not heard of another way of getting rid of them other than animal control .
They also carry diseases
Snakes are native all over the world and are a pest to every continent
They threaten adults and children as well as small game
Most people kill snakes themselves or call an animal control office to get rid of them
Snakes are also beneficial to the Environment so I don't think we want them gone completely
Zebra Mussels
From Russia
The mussels release a dangerous toxin that threatens freshwater life
They use chemicals to keep the invaders out
They haven't figured out the best solution to these pest
Comes from Africa
They carry diseases and can eat through home
People hunt them and catch near 1,000 each week
I don't know future plans to get rid of these animals
THE END !!!!
