Leading the Fight Against Invasive Species

Did you know that invasive species is one of the leading threats to native wildlife, endangered animals, agriculture, and even bodies of water? Creatures like Sea lamprey, Asian carp, and Rock snot are just a few examples of species with the potential to bring devastating harm to our lakes, rivers, and streams. They can even damage equipment like boats and drains.

Wildlife Forever have teamed up with more than 2,500 organizations across the nation, including Federal, State, and Canadian organizations, to stop the spread of invasive species with our CLEAN DRAIN DRY InitiativeTake the pledge and sign up to learn more about the tools and resources available to you to stop these pesky invaders.

About Clean Drain Dry

The Clean Drain Dry Initiative TM uses the common denominator found in outreach education to generate behavior-changing practices in recreational users that help protect natural resources from invasive species. Unifying consistent messaging of Clean Drain Dry creates stewardship and relevancy locally using nationally approved best management practices (BMPs). It can be used in conjunction with other tag lines or brands yet stands strong as the simple clear message understood by all.

In the United States, there are 12.7 million boaters and 42.5 million anglers and hunters. This large group of outdoors people spread across the nation’s forests and streams possess a tradition of resource stewardship and a duty to respond to environmental crises.

If unaware of the aquatic invasive species (AIS) issue and what to do, the outdoor community actually poses a great threat to the spread of harmful invasive fish, plants, and other organisms! Fortunately, several studies indicate a willingness to take action, knowing that our waters are too valuable to allow them to become invaded.

Invasive species impact the American public at the cost of 137 BILLION DOLLARS a year!
