PAMF and Long Island Invasive Species Management Area Presentation

February 12, 2021

LIISMA Mission:
To conserve LIISMA’s biodiversity, wildlife habitat, recreation resources, scenic quality, and crop production, while protecting human health and safety, by facilitating cooperation and coordination among land owners and managers to reduce the threat of human-introduced invasive species; and to reduce the costs of invasive species management by preventing and eradicating new invasive species infestations before they become established.

LIISMA brings together representatives from many government agencies, non-profits, and private businesses to discuss, share and learn from each other the latest invasive species strategies and issues.
• Build partnerships and facilitate coordination among stakeholders.
• Prevent new invasive species introductions.
• Gather new information about invasive species through field work and research.
• Train agency staff and volunteers in identification, prevention, mapping, monitoring, and management protocols.
• Rapidly detect and respond to new invaders.
• Help manage established invasive species to protect and restore target resources.
• Monitor changes and evaluate results of management efforts.
• Elevate the profile of the invasive species issue through education and outreach.
