What is an Invasive Species
Also known as exotic, nonnative, or introduced species. These species are plants or animals that have been introduced into areas outside of their natural habitats and cause economic or environmental harm.
Specifically, they are capable of causing a negative effect on Georgia’s economy, natural environment, and health of humans and other species.
