Summary:
Florida's warm weather and lush landscape offer an attractive habitat to a number of invasive species that are wreaking havoc on local ecosystems. Wild Chronicles investigates how these non-native species, including green iguanas, lionfish and a plant called hydrilla, first arrived. Conservationists suggest the ultimate culprits may be humans who release exotic species into an environment not prepared for their presence.
