Default 10 Invasive Species You Can Eat (and Why You Should)

10 Invasive Species You Can Eat (and Why You Should)

November 06, 2020

As an increasing number of invasive plants and animals travel around the world, more and more people are turning to a somewhat obvious solution to curb the spread: eating them. This growing movement of invasivores – people who consume edible invasive species, encourages communities to do something humans have had a knack for in the past – eating a species to extinction.1

The arrival of invasive plants and animals to an ecosystem can cause irreversible changes, including the displacement of native plants and animals, as well as the alteration of nutrient cycling and other ecosystem functions. Nonnative species are considered one of the greatest threats to imperiled species in the United States, second only to habitat loss.
