Trailer: Among Us

Invasive species describes any non-native living organism that wreaks havoc on our environment or economy or poses a threat to human health. But the origin stories of how most of these invaders showed up in the first place can be traced back to human activity. That's how the South became home to fire ants, feral hogs, hammerhead worms, nutria and more.

Now that they're among us, what can be done to mitigate their damage? It's time to channel our creative energy and take it outside.

CREEP is a podcast about creatures invading our space, and changing the world around us, presented by WUNC and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. Listen and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!
