Aquatic Invasive Species issues and prevention with Wyoming Game and Fish

(Fremont County, WY) – We hear a lot about AIS, what does it stand for and how can we prevent them? Rene Schell with Wyoming Game and Fish talks more on AIS and some facts that make Wyoming unique in this nation wide fight on AIS.

A good piece of this interview is the information on everyday hikers, campers and families transferring AIS at the 6 minute mark. Check out the interview below.

AIS are plants, animals or disease agents that are not native to an ecosystem. They can devastate area waterways and habitat, which is the last thing that Wyomingites want to face. Many states can not recover from AIS issues. So let’s make an effort to think about how we are moving and what we are transferring between water ways.
