The Worst Invasive Species Disasters In History

For our ecosystem to thrive, it’s important that a certain balance remains undisturbed. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done.

While climate change is a topic of great concern, it’s not the only ecological problem the world is facing. Another devastating phenomenon that is having dire consequences is the abundance of invasive species. What happens is an organism — anything from an animal to a bacterium — finds its way into an unfamiliar region. As it spreads in that area, it threatens other native forms of life, and the results can be disastrous. Here are some of the worst invasive species disasters in history.
