- A number of organizations have dedicated themselves to advocating for control through consumption, including Eat the Invaders and Invasivore.org. The Institute for Applied Ecology oversees the Eradication by Mastication campaign, which sponsors the annual Invasive Species Cookoff in Oregon. The most recent installment was held in August; among the dishes entered were pulled nutria, smoked blackberry lime starling tacos, and Cajun fried bullfrog legs. The institute also sells an invasive species cookbook, so you can learn how to make some nutria for yourself (crockpots really can do it all).
I love me some siberian blackberries. I have yet to figure out how to eat ivy or foxglove.
