There are five simple things that you can do to help prevent the spread of invasive non-native species. If you want to know more, view our guidance for different groups.
|Keep any boats, clothing, footwear and equipment used in water free of invasive non-native species – remember to Check Clean Dry after use.
|Be Plant Wise and don't let your garden, pond, or aquarium plants enter the wild.
|Take care of your pets, never release them or allow them to escape into the wild. It’s cruel and could harm other wildlife.
|Look out for Asian hornet and other alert species and record your sightings. Read more on Asian hornet and how to report sightings, find free ID sheets for invasive non-native species.
|If you enjoy being outside why not volunteer with a Local Action Group working on invasive species management.
