FHWP Priority Species

The FHWP has developed two lists of species for inventory and control: the “Early Eight” and the “Dirty Dozen”

The Early Eight
These eight species are Early Detection/ Rapid Response species that are either:
1) Not known to be in the state, but found in neighboring CT & MA, or
2) Thought to have limited distributions in Rhode Islands.

Please report these species immediately by using this FORM.
