Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers Videos and PSAs

Many people have questions about the specifics of stopping aquatic hitchhikers, the actual cleaning, draining and drying of your equipment.  Thanks to partners all around the country, here are a collection of videos and Public Service Announcements that use the Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers brand and theme to promote the prevention behaviors, help to better explain the clean, drain, dry processes and vigilance that must be practiced when recreating on the water.  Feel free to access and download these videos to complement your outreach efforts in helping others to integrate these conservation behaviors into their outdoor experiences on the water.

Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) such as Asian carp and zebra mussels are animals and plants not native to Kansas that can threaten lake and river ecology, harm native or desirable species, and interfere with our economy. They often hitchhike on boating or fishing equipment, so an informed public is the best way to help protect our Kansas waters. Learn how you can help at http://ProtectKSWaters.org.
