  1. An invasive species can be any kind of living organism—an amphibian (like the cane toad pictured left), plant, insect, fish, fungus, bacteria, or even an organism's seeds or eggs—that is not native to an ecosystem and which causes harm. They can harm the environment, the economy or even, human health.

 birds or the wind can carry seeds from garden plants into the wild. Exotic pets escape or are released into parks, lakes, and rivers. People can carry seeds on their clothing, in suitcases, or on cars. Packets of birdseed can contain seeds of invasive plants. 

Relaxation techniques are a great way to help with stress management. Relaxation isn't just about peace of mind or enjoying a hobby. Relaxation is a process that decreases the effects of stress on your mind and body. Relaxation techniques can help you cope with everyday stress and with stress related to various health problems, such as cancer and pain.
