Details

What do marsh frogs, parakeets, New Zealand pigmyweed, and box tree moth have in common? They are all non-native species to the UK. While some of these species have enriched our gardens with colour and wildlife, others have been highly invasive in the UK and are now threatening our native habitats and species.

Come on this walk to discover more about non-native species in the UK. Find out which plants and animals have become invasive and are now harming the environment and learn what people can do to manage them.
