The aim of this project is to train and equip volunteer groups to enable them to prevent and tackle Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) in their locality in the future.
Globally, Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) pose the second biggest threat to biodiversity. The Tees catchment plays host to a number of problematic INNS that are spreading through the system, including the poisonous Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed and American Signal Crayfish.
Work has been carried out to prevent the spread of INNS, which will improve the overall health of the River Tees.
This project aims to train and equip volunteer groups to enable them to map and control Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) where possible in their locality. an important legacy for the future.
