This project was designed to help combat the spread of the UK’s most problematic invasive, non-native plant species.

  • Over 25,000 unique records collected since August 2012
  • Featured on BBC Countryfile

Identify the suspects

PlantTracker features a clean, simple interface focused on showing images of the plants to aid identification. You can ‘favourite’ species for quick reference and make use of search / filter functionality to quickly find what you are looking for

Submit a record

Go on, it’s easy! Take a photo, find your location (using device geo-location or inbuilt mapping) and tell us how much is present. Once you’ve entered the required details the app can submit the data directly to the national database where it’s verified by experts.

Keep up-to-date with the project

The PlantTracker website will help to keep you informed of what’s going on with the project.  At our new website you can access species maps, blog posts and further information on the project including who’s topping the recorder leaderboard
