NECIS promotes sound policy to prevent harmful non-native or invasive species from being introduced, becoming established, and spreading in the United States.
To accomplish this vision, NECIS promotes needed legislation, regulation, and funding by engaging in a combination of analysis, media work, advocacy, education and outreach, and alliance-building. This work is organized around five inter-related campaigns focusing on:
- aquatic invaders;
- plant invaders;
- forest pests and pathogens;
- animal invaders and associated pests and pathogens; and
- climate change and invasive species.
