There are over 1500 native plant species in British Columbia!! Invasive plants lack natural predators and can outcompete native plants for space and resources. Why do we need to protect native plant populations from invasive species and habitat loss? Native plants provide a variety of important ecosystem goods and services. They provide oxygen, capture carbon and help keep our water clean. In addition they support pollinators and wildlife!
