Webinar: Join the launch of WGA’s Invasive Species Data Mobilization Campaign

The Western Governors’ Association and the North American Invasive Species Management Association hosted a webinar on Dec. 16 to launch the WGA Invasive Species Data Mobilization Campaign.

High-quality information is an essential weapon in the fight against invasive species in the West. Land managers, conservation groups, industry and private landowners need accurate, current regional invasive species occurrence data. Technological barriers and standardization issues, however, often prevent wide sharing of useful invasive species occurrence data.

The Invasive Species Data Mobilization Campaign encourages national, state and local land managers and conservation groups to enter previously unavailable data into new or existing invasive species data management platforms using recommendations developed by WGA.
