Aliens aren’t just big green monsters from outer space; they are also plants, animals or
microorganisms that live around you – perhaps in your community, your neighbourhood
or maybe even your backyard.
The Aliens Among Us app allows you to explore these aliens with information and
images on the history, location and impact of some of British Columbia’s most notorious
alien species including American Bullfrogs, European Starlings, Smallmouth Bass,
Asian Mussels, Eastern Gray Squirrels, Giant Hogweed and Purple Loosestrife.
You can also become an alien spotter and track species using the GPS map function or upload
your own alien sighting with images.
So when you’re out and about in British Columbia’s backyard, take the Aliens Among
Us app with you. You’ll be helping track aliens!
