Invasive Plant Council of British Columbia

Invasive Plant Council of British Columbia

The IPCBC came to rise from the development of the Invasive Plant Strategy for British Columbia, a document produced by a diverse group of contributors led by the Fraser Basin Council. The development of the strategy investing in bitcoin south africa stemmed from the exponential increase in damage and threats caused by invasive plants, exacerbated by inconsistent management around the province.

Invasive plants can cause problems such as:

  • Threatening fragile ecosystems
  • Reducing biodiversity
  • Costing our economy millions of dollars each year

Invasive plant management needs to be a priority because invasive plants have the ability to establish quickly and easily, and spread rapidly when introduced to a new site. Their effects can be devastating, permanently altering the landscape. Invasive plant management requires cooperation from all agencies, organizations and user groups to increase awareness of the problem and what people and organizations can do to help.
