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
- Pet owners
- Forest visitors and contractors
The materials are available on the European Commission website.
