Welcome to Invasive Species Northern Ireland

Invasive non-native plant and animal species are the second greatest threat to biodiversity worldwide after habitat destruction. They can negatively impact on native species, can transform habitats and threaten whole ecosystems causing serious problems to the environment and the economy.

From here, users can still find information on a range of species, policy related to individual species or groups of species, and practical advice to deal with species that threaten the biodiversity and economy of Northern Ireland.

Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to the environment but with your help we can make a difference.
