Invasive Alien Species have colonised riverbanks throughout Northern Ireland. They threaten our native wildlife, economy and in some cases can be harmful to us. Submitting your records of invasive species provides a clearer understanding of their distribution along our waterways, such as the Six Mile Water; their potential for spread; and their impact on native species, habitats and ecosystems.

Please send your records and sightings of Giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed and Himalayan balsam to Invasive Species Ireland. The records will help us determine the extent of the invasive species problem in Ireland and facilitate a rapid response, where necessary. These can simple be recorded on Alien Watch“

The Invasive Alien Riverbank identification pocket guide was developed as part of a partnership between Antrim Borough Council, Newtownabbey Borough Council and Ballinderry River Enhancement Association to raise awareness on Invasive Alien Species. The project was funded by a Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Water Quality Improvement Grant.
