'Like a bad dream': Parks Canada fights back against invasive species in Keji

'Like a bad dream': Parks Canada fights back against invasive species in Keji From a single fish captured less than a year ago, Parks Canada says chain pickerel are being found throughout Keji.

If we look back at its history, we will see that there were several foreign communities living in Moscow on a permanent basis. But how has 'Doctor Who' managed to survive for this long? What sets it apart from other amazing shows that are now over?

Officials worried about invasive species in B.C. want people to report insects, plants or animals that don't appear as if they they belong in the province.

The call comes after some exotic wildlife showed up in Metro Vancouver. The worry is that some exotic species will become established in B.C., pushing out native species for space, food or light.

A couple in North Vancouver are concerned about B.C.'s honey bee population after they found and captured a huge hornet at an office along Vancouver's waterfront a week ago.

Invasive pigs are going hog wild as they spread through Canada

Invasive pigs are going hog wild as they spread through Canada Wild pigs are now Canada's most prolific invasive mammal, according to what the University of Saskatchewan says is the first-ever published survey of the wild pig distribution in Canada.

Because of its energy, its empowering narrative, it seemed like the perfect pick for “Hamilton”. In interviews Miranda says that he had always taken it as a given that hip-hop is the music of the revolution.

It doesn ' t work with please because please says 'here's a request', and I've phrased this as not-a-request, but as a question of possibility. All this is just to again make the point that just because Americans say please less, it doesn ' t mean they're (we're!) doing less politeness work.

"We were absolutely mortified," said Valerie Greer. She suspects the big hornet is a Japanese giant hornet, which prey on honey bees.

"You know the minute that we saw it, we knew it wasn't right and we knew it didn't belong here," Greer said.

She and her partner kept the insect and froze it in their freezer. They're handing it over to officials at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia to try to establish a positive identification.

'This is not good'

"These things are massive," said Greer, referring to the hornet. "We just thought 'this is not good, we need to find out what the heck is going on.'"

Officials commended Greer and her partner for capturing the hornet and having it properly identified.

It's what they want others to do if they see something that doesn't look like it belongs in B.C.

Hungry Goats Get Jobs as Summer Interns at New York City Park The goats will roam around the park, grazing on things like Poison Ivy, pests and vines that block out sunlight. More than two dozen goats have traveled from upstate New York to spend the summer working in New York City. Their job? Eating. A lot. "They're going to eat up all the invasive plants and clear the area and make it more usable for people, and to allow us to regenerate our native species," said Dan Garodnick, president of the Riverside Park Conservancy. "Goats have been used for horticultural care in many places," he added.

Gail Wallin runs the Invasive Species Council of B.C., which works with multiple levels of government to enable reporting and public outreach.

"Success is actually not finding something, but being the first ones to find it and taking action to get rid of it is a really positive thing," said Wallin.

The council has a reporting app, for residents to use to report a species that appears foreign. They can also contact the council with questions.

In Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency manages the prevention and spread of invasive species into the country.

It says it has not had any official detection of Japanese giant hornets in B.C., but will do a risk assessment to determine if the pest can survive in Canada and if regulation is needed.

Officials with the inspection agency say concerned residents can also send the agency photos of insects or pests residents find. It advises that residents freeze insects and keep them in case officials want to follow up.

South Coast at risk

Wallin says it's important that if someone does capture an exotic insect or animal, to not release it before calling authorities.

Vancouver is currently working to contain a Japanese beetle known for eviscerating plants. As well, the region has seen several exotic species show up over the years.

Scorpions, northern snakehead fish, mandarin ducks, and red-eared slider turtles are just some of species that have been found along with invasive plants like knotweed, giant hogweed and blessed milk thistle.

Wallin says the South Coast is particularly at risk because of its busy ports, growing population and moderate climate.
