--Supporting the military’s testing and training mission by protecting its biological resources
The links below describe procedures, outlines responsibilities, and defines requirements for preparing military conveyances (vehicles, vessels, aircraft), rolling stock, equipment, cargo and unit and personal gear to comply with agricultural and public health pest exclusion requirements for movement of ships, aircraft, equipment, and personnel, particularly from locations outside the United States (US).
Invasive species are non-native plants or animals that out-compete native species in any given habitat. They cause significant harm to the economy and environment, and/or human health and wellbeing. These species can take over training lands, injure soldiers, damage equipment, overwhelm listed and at-risk species, and significantly erode natural resources and training budgets.
Conserving our nation’s pollinators and their habitat is key to conserving our lands and waters, delivering natural solutions to the changing climate, and providing all Americans with access to nature and its many benefits. Whether it’s building a native pollinator garden in your yard or sharing your connection to pollinators with others, any conservation action helps.
