In a world of international trade, how is it possible to protect British wildlife from invisible invaders like the fungus that causes ash dieback? Derek Mooney tries to find out.

Telling the stories of non-native invasive species and our complicated attitudes to them.

Four and a half years later are we closer to knowing what the final toll will be on our ash trees and with an uncertain political future how do we limit the risks posed by other invisible invaders?
