The Owl’s Corner: Invasive Species

What is the best way to handle

invading animals and plants from other parts of the world?

Sylvie asks:

Being an ecologist, I am regularly confronted by invasive species, as new plant and animal species are regularly introduced into new, foreign environments by human activities, and will cause important damages and kills. So I wonder about how the beings want us to react.

  1. Is it our responsibility to restore balance by moving or (quite often) kill the invaders?
  2. Would the animals and plants cope alone with the problem, and let the nature take care of it, knowing that maybe hundreds of individual will die?

I find it very difficult to decide what to do for helping and would like to know what animals and plants are feeling about this.

Thanks.
