About this Journey

Learn about Shanghai’s invasive species with our wildlife experts.

In addition to its massive migrant human population, Shanghai has been, and is being transformed by non-native plants and animals. These organisms are called invasive species, and though they are largely unrecognized by us, they are harming the local environment. Invasive species adversely affect the invaded habitats and bioregions, causing ecological, environmental, and/or economic damage.​

Biodiversity is an essential part of the solution to climate change. Through this program, students will see Shanghai through a new perspective and better understand the intricacies of climate change, environmental protection, and eco-activism.
