Invasive non-native species are one of the top five drivers of global biodiversity loss and cost the Northern Ireland economy approximately £46.5 million a year and can even harm our health. Help us to protect our environment and wildlife by taking part in Invasive Species Week!
Last year over 260 organisations took part, if you or your organisation would like to join us in 2023 we’ve put together a list of daily themes and some event ideas for you to use.
Please let us know your plans by getting in touch via email@example.com so we can add them to our events page.

What can your audience, staff or members do to help? (See our five things that everyone can do for inspiration)
Could you arrange an event? (See our list of ideas to help)
