Invasive Species

Non-native, invasive species are plants and animals, usually introduced intentionally, that often out compete native plants and animals. The main ones of concern in our area are:

Plants.

  1. Giant Hogweed
  2. Himalayan Balsam
  3. Japanese Knotweed

Animals.

  1. American Signal Crayfish
  2. Mink

Sheets detailing the identification of these invasive species of flora and fauna can be found on a UK government site, Non Native Species Secretariat.
