Invasive Species of the UK
Created by


122 participants 83 spottings

Over the last few centuries, many new species have been introduced to the British Isles, intentionally or otherwise. These invasives have played a role in the decline in many native British species, as they are often either very aggressive or have no natural predators here. This mission aims to map out where invasives have been found. If you are unsure how to deal with the invasive species, check the Environment Agency website for their instructions.
