Provides links to state-specific resources with an interest in the prevention, control, or eradication of invasive species.

Items of Interest:

Squeal on Pigs
Washington Invasive Species Council.
The states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho are urging people to report any feral pig sighting by calling a toll-free, public hotline, the Swine Line: 1-888-268-9219. The states hope the hotline will help them eradicate and curb the spread of feral pigs and provide a better sense of the number of pigs here.

Tsunami Debris Reaching Washington's Coastline
Washington Department of Ecology.
Some large tsunami debris, such as metal drums, boats and docks, may contain hazardous substances or invasive species. If you find debris that may pose a life-threatening risk, call 911 immediately. Report other tsunami-related debris to the Washington State Marine debris hotline: 1-855-WACOAST (1-855-922-6278). If you believe the debris may be contaminated with aquatic invasive species (AIS), please use the online Invasive Species Reporting Form. Contact DisasterDebris@noaa.gov with all other marine debris concerns and questions.

Washington State Watercraft Passport
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The Washington State Watercraft Passport is free and available for use by the public. The passport is primarily designed for Washington residents who regularly transport recreational watercraft in and out of the state, but is available to any boater. The passport can help boaters to keep track of the waters they've visited and aquatic invasive species (AIS) inspection stations they've stopped at.

WISE: Washington Invasive Species Education
Washington Invasive Species Council.
The Washington Invasive Species Council created the Washington Invasive Species Education, or WISE, Web site to inform people about the invasive species problem, how invasive species are spread and introduced (pathways), and how we all can be part of the solution. By raising awareness of invasive species, we will help prevent their spread and impacts. Let's all be WISE!
