Invading Species Hotline

The Invading Species Hotline serves as a valuable resource for the public, especially during times of increased public concern. Members of the public are able to call and speak with an invasive species expert to report a sighting or to inquire about invasive species information. The hotline number has been listed on numerous outreach materials created and distributed by the Invading Species Awareness Program. Think you’ve found an invasive species or want more information on invasive species? 
Please note: if you are reporting to the Invading Species Hotline and your report is for a high-risk species, we may share your name and contact information with invasive species partner organizations in order to facilitate next steps towards rapid response. Thank you for your understanding.


Contact the Invading Species Hotline 1-800-563-7711


We have an invasive species tracking system, and mobile app for Android and Apple devices! EDDMapS is a fast and easy way to map invasive species without any technical expertise.
