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.
All records and sightings will help us determine the extent of the invasive species problem in Ireland and facilitate a rapid response, where necessary.
