LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Invasive species are plants, animals or other organisms introduced outside their original range and cause harm in their new home.

Arkansas Game and Fish is working to raise awareness. Steve "Wildman" Wilson shared more details on "THV 11 This Morning".

Invasive alien species are plants, animals or other organisms introduced outside their original range and cause harm in their new home. Because they have no natural enemies to limit their reproduction, they usually spread rampantly.

Invasive alien species choke out native species and impose enormous costs to agriculture, forestry, fisheries and other human enterprises.

In some cases, they pose a threat to human health.
