Aquatic plants, reptiles, fish, and other animals that become unwanted are sometimes released into nearby waters and parks, which is inhumane and can be harmful to the environment. Send us your illustrations depicting invasive species that might be released by pet/aquarium owners, how their release impacts our natural resources, or what you could do with unwanted pets/plants instead of releasing them.
