Defending Favorite Places

How Hunters and Anglers Can Stop the Spread of Invasive Species

Front cover image of Defending Favorite Places DVD case.

America's hunters and anglers represent essential stakeholders in combating invasive species threatening native fish and wildlife populations and their habitats. Preventing and controlling invasive species is an achievable goal. Linking invasive species management principles with the hunting and angling conservation ethic is critical. Invasive species threaten the future of hunting and fishing. Sportsmen and women across the nation are joining forces to defend their favorite places.

The documentary video, Defending Favorite Places, was produced on DVD as part of the National Invasive Species Threat Campaign with support from Wildlife Forever, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Center for Invasive Plant Management, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, and many public and private organizations and individuals.
