Stimulated by the rapid global expansion of trade, transport, and travel, invasive species and their costs to society are increasing at an alarming rate. ...

American Policy Governing Ballast Water
Fortunately, change has arrived in the American government.  Those currently in charge are sensitive to environmental concerns, especially those of the Great Lake region.  President Obama co-sponsored the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact which Congress recently passed.  This Compact, a multistate agreement between Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin under Congressional consent, governs the use of water from the Great Lakes, including “water quality maintenance, and the maintenance of fish and wildlife habitat and a balanced ecosystem.” [i] Further, Obama ... market research, surveys and trends

Grand Canyon's future at 'grave risk,' report says
Add to those threats a perpetually underfunded budget and the picture that emerges is a national park where efforts to protect resources are increasingly compromised, a conservation group said Monday. In an 80-page "State of the Parks" report, the National Parks Conservation Association analyzed the most serious threats to the Grand Canyon.

Need another public meeting on the overall management plan at American Camp
We were gratified that the National Park Service held the recent meeting dealing with rabbit control at American Camp. We also were gratified that the meeting was reorganized (thank you, Linda Downes) to a public discussion of rabbit control options where all those members of the public in attendance could comment to the assembled group. However, we feel that rabbit control is only part of the management strategy proposed and currently employed by the NPS in management of the American Camp prairie. Considered an invasive species, the rabbits are only one part of a multi-pronged approach to control and eliminate other invasive ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I am an SIS student in Sharjah U.A.E 9th grade (C.B.S.E) and i have a project regarding Conservation of our ecosystem.Can some one please help? A decline in biodiversity has been observed across most regions of South Australia, particularly in the agricultural areas where habitat destruction or modification has disrupted ecosystems and created a landscape of remnant ‘islands’ or fragmented patches of vegetation.
