On July 13, 2016 the Union list is published. This list contains animal and plant species that are prohibited by August 4th. With what purpose? The complete eradication of invasive alien species in the European nature and in captivity. Amongst others, the beloved Waterhyacinth is on the list, an ornamental aquatic plant that many pond owners have in their gardens. This affects not only individuals , but also many shops, zoos , botanical gardens and schools with green educations! An impact that many people tend to underestimate . They don’t want to contain species, but completely eradicate them. Crazy right?!
Please help! Sign the petition form and join us in a strong front against the Union list!
