Deadly Bat Disease Detected in Single Wisconsin Site; State Joins 23 Others in Confirming White-Nose Syndrome (Apr 10, 2014)
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
White-nose syndrome, a bat disease that has spread to 23 states and killed up to 5 million bats since 2006, has been confirmed in Wisconsin, state natural resources officials announced today. Results from visual inspection and genetic and tissue tests completed earlier this month showed that 2 percent of bats in a single mine in southwestern Wisconsin had the disease, named for the characteristic white fuzz on their nose, wings and tails, according to Erin Crain, who leads the Department of Natural Resources Natural Heritage Conservation Program.

Agency Seeks Public Comments on State Strategic Plan to Control Invasive Species (Jan 3, 2013)
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
A draft statewide strategic plan to guide Wisconsin state agencies and partners in responding to the threat of invasive species to state ecosystems, recreational opportunities and economic sectors is now available for public comment. The plan and all discussion summaries can be found on the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council website under the Strategic Plan. To provide comments or for more information please contact Mindy Wilkinson, DNR's invasive species coordinator, at Melinda.Wilkinson@wisconsin.gov, or 608-266-6437; or Paul Schumacher, Chair of the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council, spaulsdoor@aol.com, or 920-823-2109.

Reports Document Efforts and Successes in Addressing Invasive Species (Jan 3, 2013)
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
Two online reports document progress made in 2011-2012 in preventing the introduction and spread of invasive species to Wisconsin lakes, rivers, forests and wetlands, and outline needs to fill in the gaps. Posted in December 2012, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Report to the Legislature on Invasive Species Programs (PDF | 473 KB), highlights efforts by DNR programs to address invasive species, which can crowd out native plant and animal species, threaten core business sectors including agriculture, tourism, forestry and energy, and hamper recreation. A second report, the 2010-2012 Wisconsin Aquatic Invasive Species Progress Report (PDF | 7.18 MB), drills down into efforts to help stop the introduction and spread of aquatic invasive species including Eurasian water-milfoil, zebra mussels, Asian carp and more.

Invasive Plant Bounty - Guidelines
Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin (IPAW).
One of the basic principles of invasive plant management is early detection. To that end, IPAW is sponsoring a reward program to encourage and provide incentive for citizens of the state to look for and report prohibited invasive plants.

New App Lets You Report Invasive Species (Oct 15, 2012)
Ohio State University Extension.
Ohio State University Extension has released a new app for spotting and tracking invasive species -- non-native organisms such as Asian carps, purple loosestrife and Asian longhorned beetle -- to try to keep them from setting up beachheads and hurting the economy and environment. By using the free Great Lakes Early Detection Network app, a person can take pictures of suspected invasive species -- whether of farm, forest or water -- and upload the pictures and locations for verification. Based on this early warning, scientists can send out alerts, map the spread and figure out a battle plan. The network covers the states of Ohio, New York, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.
