Who are they?

The Invasive Species Specialist Group (IUCN Species Survival Commission) is a global network of scientific and policy experts on invasive species, organized under the auspices of the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Aims to reduce threats to natural ecosystems and the native species they contain by increasing awareness of invasive alien species, and of ways to prevent, control or eradicate them.

How can they help?

Provides technical and scientific advice to IUCN Members, and national and regional agencies in developing policy and strategies to manage the risk of biological invasions. The ISSG hosts the Global Invasive Species Database that is an online source of information about alien and invasive species that negatively impact biodiversity.
