Welcome to the Spot the Alien Campaign

The Spot the Alien citizen science campaign was launched in 2019 and is the third national citizen science campaign coordinated by Prof. Alan Deidun, Dr. Adam Gauci, Mr. Johann Galdies and Mr. Martin Galea De Giovanni.

It aims to promote the submission of reports of Non-Indigenous Species (NIS), commonly known as ‘alien species’, spotted within Maltese waters by citizen scientists. Whilst the Spot the Alien Fish campaign (launched in 2017) focuses on alien fish species, the Spot the Alien campaign focuses on all other alien species.

This campaign is supported financially by the International Ocean Institute (IOI) through annual grants and is providing an unparalleled contribution to Malta’s international alien species monitoring obligations as well as alien species scientific monitoring efforts.
