Invasive species are a major threat to the health and resilience of BC’s ecosystems and the Indigenous communities that rely on them. Stewardship of the land has been a way of life for Indigenous communities across BC for millennia however, traditional invasive species management has not always recognized Indigenous knowledge and leadership. Moving forward, from planning to operations, integrating Indigenous leadership and knowledge into Western science will be key to protecting our lands and waters from the negative impacts of invasive species.
