AbstractThe northern raccoon (Procyon lotor) is listed as invasive alien species. Introduced through pet trade, the raccoon poses a potential threat to native biodiversity and human health. Order in Council 1628/2011, November 14, that regulates the Spanish List and Catalogue of Invasive Alien Species, establishes the setting-up of an early warning system for detecting and monitoring non-indigenous potential invasive species. Direct observation of carnivores, elusives and actives at night, is rare. However, wildlife tracking is an economical and effective detection technique. Obtaining information on the current raccoon distribution and new introduction events would help to plan control and eradication actions. Early detection and rapid response system must be activated and citizen participation promoted.
