INVASIVE SPECIES PREVENTION

WHAT ARE INVASIVE SPECIES?

Invasive Species are one of the top 5 highest risks to world and UK biodiversity according to the UK Government’s 2017 Foresight review.

Invasive Species are plants and animals from other countries that have been introduced and have become established outside of their normal habitat or native country.

The spread of invasive species is a major issue in both marine and inland waters around the world. They can disrupt our boating activities, compete with native plants and animals and can cause major changes to entire ecosystems.

 

HELP RAISE AWARENESS

Support ‘Invasive Species Week’ 18th – 22nd May 2020.

Just follow @TheGreenBlue and use #InvasiveSpeciesWeek on social media and share our facts on invasive animals and plants and how boaters can help to prevent the spread and introduction of these harmful species into and around our UK waters.

Raise awareness of invasive species prevention amongst fellow boaters, club members and customers using our selection of awareness raising resources.

BE INFORMED AND TAKE ACTION!

Find out more about invasive species and how to ‘Stop the Spread’ by following the Check, Clean, Dry biosecurity guidance to remove them from your craft, equipment, clothing and structures.
