Welcome to the
New York Invasive Species Information

NEW YORK INVASIVE SPECIES INFORMATION (NYIS.INFO).. is your gateway to science-based information, breaking news and events, and innovative tools for coping with biological invaders in New York. NYIS.INFO links scientists, local, state and federal resource managers, policy setters, educators, and grassroots efforts to help you become part of the battle against invasive species in New York. NYIS.INFO is also home to the National Aquatic Nuisance Species Clearinghouse Invasive Species Database of published aquatic invasive species research.

NY Invasive Species Info grew out of the original New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse on July 1, 2015 when the Clearinghouse's New York State funding came to an end. The original Clearinghouse was founded in October 2008 with New York Environmental Protection Fund resources through a contract with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in response to a recommendation of the November 2005 report of the New York State Invasive Species Task Force. For more information on who we are, please refer to our About page. More information on New York State's and the U.S. Federal invasive species programs can be found on our NYS Response, PRISMs & Partners, and Federal Response tabs.

New York Invasive Species Information

*Website Redesign Survey*

New York Sea Grant is partnering with NYSDEC to make the necessary updates to the New York Invasive Species Information Website (NYIS.INFO). The Mission of NYIS.INFO is to be a gateway for New Yorkers to access timely, accurate scientific and policy information to assist them in making informed decisions about preventing, eradicating, controlling and managing invasive species in New York State. We are collecting feedback from all of you prior to making any changes to this website. The information being collected in this survey will aid NYSG/NYSDEC in making better informed decisions in the redesign of NYIS.INFO in the future. If you have not done so already, please complete this survey below.
