Invasive Species

The Highland Invasive Species Forum defines invasive species as those that are not native to the Highlands and damage native biodiversity. Viruses, bacteria, etc, were not considered, as they fall under the remit of animal health and have considerable resources targeted at them.

The Forum meets annually to bring together people with an interest in this work together with experts in both practical action and research to share good practice and encourage working together to secure new resources and funding.
