There are arguments for both sides of assisted colonization, not only in the American Great Plains. Proponents believe it is the last and only resort for species that are losing their habitat, and that with careful selection relocated populations could adapt and thrive. Opponents express concern over the potentially devastating effects of introducing an invasive species, based on past history such as with the Zebra mussel in the Great Lakes. They also fear that people will lose sight of the big picture, which is protecting and conserving the endangered species’ natural habitats, instead settling for the “quick fix” of colonization.
