It's here!  The Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC), along with co-sponsors the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), announced the re-launch of the Habitattitude educational campaign during the Reduce Risks from Invasive Species Coalition’s (RRISC) agency fair on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Habitattitude is a non-regulatory collaboration between industry groups and government agencies that is designed to increase awareness of the risks posed by non-native species in the environment and to positively impact consumer attitudes and practices.
