Aquatic Invasive Species - Above and Below the Waterline

Wildlife Forever and Wired2Fish collaborated on this short film, which displays rarely seen footage of several Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) from unique perspectives. 

These invasive aquatic plants and animals threaten native species, and how we interact with water resources (boating, fishing, swimming, etc.). Our mission is to help spur awareness of the impacts of AIS, prompt collaboration, and empower user groups to take action against their spread. For more information, contact:
