Invasive Species Forums 2022 – South Africa – Invasives SA. Attend an Invasive Species Forum and discover what’s hiding in your garden, pond or park. We must protect biodiversity and safe our water resources from threats posed by invasive species. Know what you grow, and prevent the spread of invasive species.

There are 567 invasive species on the National List of Invasive Species – divided into four Categories – 1a, 1b, 2 and 3.
Category 1a and 1b species should be removed.
Category 2 species need permits.
Category 3 species cannot be sold or propagated, but can remain in place.

Update your skills in the invasive species sector and spend a day at an Invasive Species Forum in your area. The Biosecurity Compliance Advocacy Unit of the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment has set up a full day stakeholder engagement programme for the public during 2022.
