Design a basis for the cooperation between Spain and Portugal in order to combat alien invasive species.
Develop an Iberian Strategy in order to deal with alien invasive species through the use of an Action Plan.
Identify the alien invasive species present in both Tajo and Guadiana drainage basins (Spain and Portugal), and also those species that are not present yet, but  might be a plausible thread in the near future.
Evaluate alien invasive species effect on native species and their habitats.
Implement new methods to eradicate and prevent the introduction of the following exotic invasive species: Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha), Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea), American mink (Neovison vison), Slider turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans), water fern (Azolla filiculoides), silver wattle (Acacia dealbata), and ailanthus (Ailanthus altissima).
Restore endemic flora and fauna species in danger of extinction which are affected by alien invasive species in Extremadura, such as the European fan palm (Chamaerops humilis), or the Pyrenean desman (Galemys pyrenaicus); and reintroduce a plant that can no longer be found in Spain nowadays (Sagittaria sagittifolia).
Avoid the introduction of the Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) in both Tajo and Guadiana drainage basins in Extremadura and Portugal.
Change our society's outlook regarding the introduction of exotic species and its trade, through the development of awareness-raising actions within the involved areas.
Train LIFE + INVASEP Project staff to enable them to combat alien invasive species.
Raise public awareness on the thread of invasive species, especially those introduced for commercial purposes; and the importance of tackling biodiversity loss in Europe
The main objective in this project is to stop biodiversity loss caused by alien invasive species in the Iberian Peninsula, this way taking part in the objective of the Communication from the European Community, COM (2006) 216 final “Stopping Biodiversity Loss by 2010 and beyond”.
