Interior Department Addresses Invasive Species

Problem expected to cost over $120 billion to fix.

The Department of the Interior released a draft of a strategic plan to tackle the major issue of invasive species across the nation. Curtailing the plants and animals that are detrimental to the ecosystems in Guam, the Great Lakes, the Everglades, and in the Western United States is expected to cost upward of $120 billion. 

The Interior’s Acting Assistant Secretary for Policy, Management, and Budget Scott Cameron said, “The Trump Administration has been focused on addressing the considerable, negative impacts of invasive species by working across jurisdictional boundaries with our partners. The draft plan sets out a vision for effectively managing invasive species through collaborative conservation to protect our nation’s biodiversity and economy.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would lead the Interior Department to care for His creation.
  • For Secretary Bernhardt to be given wisdom on how to lead the Interior Department
  • That Acting Assistant Secretary Cameron to manage the Interior budget effectively.
