The Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG)
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.
The Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) 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).
The ISSG was established in 1994. It currently has 196 core members from over 40 countries and a wide informal global network of over 2000 conservation practitioners and experts who contribute to its work.
