The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to preserve the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive. Invasive species can interfere with our mission by moving into natural landscapes and affecting native species, communities and systems. We work to promote flourishing native communities by preventing invasions and controlling invaders. How do invasive plants affect the environment?
