Exotic animals in Barcelona

Florida Tortoise

This project put together descriptions of the status of exotic animals in Barcelona. These animals included both domesticated animals, i.e. living in households, and those who have been released in parks and forest areas. This study was a necessary step in the development of the Biodiversity Plan for the city. The project distinguished exotic species, invasive alien species and invasive species of exotic animals. It also analyzed the problems generated by these species, from public health to the economy, through the environment. From the initial diagnosis, this project has developed a descriptive list of alien species present in Barcelona and has proposed measures to understand and control the population of these animals.
