Invasive non-native species

Invasive non-native species are the second most significant cause of biodiversity loss worldwide and are an increasing priority globally.

Our team uniquely carries out large-scale field control and monitoring operations, focusing on invasive non-native species and assessing the impact of non-native species and facilitating methods of control.

We also conduct research in support of these activities and in collaboration with universities and other institutions.
