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 1st November 2021 this website will relate only to invasive non – native species (INNS) issues in Northern Ireland. There will be some ongoing editing and changes taking place over the next few weeks, please bear with us.
