This new documentary takes a deep dive into how invasive species are impacting the everyday lives of New Yorkers and what is being done about it. Most importantly it helps educate the public about the thread of invasive species.

“One of our biggest partners in all of this is the general public...We need eyes and boots on the ground. We cannot just be everywhere, even with the partners that (NYSDEC) have. So having an educated public on these matters is very important” Rob Davies, a State Forester told 12 News.

According to experts, the state of New York is considered to be extremely high risk and the epicenter for many invasive species due to the amount of foreign and domestic commerce conducted daily.
