What’s the Problem?

Invasive non-native species affect our ecosystems, lifestyles and livelihoods in a range of different ways. In brief, they can:

  • out-compete native species
  • create pressure on native species through direct predation
  • negatively affect human health
  • increase flood risk
  • create navigation hazards within canals and waterways
  • affect horticulture and agriculture
  • introduce and spread diseases to native species
