Seaplane Pilots Testing Invasive Species Education
Pacific Northwest seaplane pilots have pioneered a program that would allow pilots to perform their own invasive species inspections prior to landing in another state’s waters rather than requiring state or federal inspectors to perform the examination.

Participants watch an educational video, take an accompanying quiz, and pocket a completion certificate. The course describes how to analyze seaplane aircraft for contamination, and if detected, how to rid the invasive species from the craft. The novel plan was rolled out in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana a few weeks ago and is gaining traction. Proponents say it could lower the cost of inspections for pilots, speed up interstate transport for floatplanes, and lessen the burden for government examiners.

Our Government Cannot Stop all Invaders – Take Matters into Your Own Hands - Our government cannot stop all invaders at our borders. Sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands. Plants that come into the United States from abroad can choke our crops, native plants and gardens or cause algae blooms that kill fish. They can even poison animals. Invasive species threaten our environment, our economy and our health. The flood of plants and food that come in through ports and airports potentially brings in pests, disease and harmful plants.
