Invasive species are plants and animals not native to a region. When introduced into a native ecosystem, they are competing against native plant and animals. Invasive species can be introduced accidentally or on purpose. Many are brought in with shipments of produce or plants from foreign countries, or hitchhike on ships and planes. Many animals are brought in legally as pets, and then released when people don’t want them anymore.
