The Law Commission of England has published a report on Wildlife Law: Control of Invasive Non-native Species:
"Invasive non-native species are ones that arrive as a result of human action and cause environmental and economic damage. They pose a significant threat to ecosystems as well as damaging property and infrastructure. Existing law does not contain sufficient powers to allow for their timely and effective control or eradication. Our recommendations in relation to species control orders will allow for a proportionate and necessary response to an increasing problem."
The report is part of the Commission's Wildlife Law project
