Beware of aliens! New Europe-wide awareness raising campaign launched

Last edited: Oct 5, 2022, 8:30 AM

A new Europe-wide awareness campaign is calling on everyone to prevent the spread of invasive alien (non-native) species. 

A series of materials including posters, animations and social media graphics have been developed through a European Commission-funded project. The project was led by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH) and the Atlantic Technological University, Ireland, and involved government agencies, trade organisations, NGOs and research institutes across Europe.

Bespoke materials have been developed for five key groups:

  • Owners of aquatic plants and animals
  • Anglers
  • Pet owners
  • Gardeners
  • Forest visitors and contractors

The materials are available on the European Commission website.
