The Dee Invasive Non-Native Species Project
This Dee Invasive Non-Native Species Project is a catchment-wide partnership initiative which aims to coordinate the control and monitoring of Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) within the Dee catchment to ensure a joined up approach to INNS management is delivered. The project will also work to raise awareness of invasive non-native species and biosecurity within the Dee catchment to ensure our native wildlife is protected for the future.
Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) are animal and plant species which are not native to the UK and are causing damage to our environment, economy, health and way of life. On the Dee riverside INNS, such as Himalayan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed, are reducing biodiversity, increasing erosion and reducing access to the river for recreation.
There are many different groups controlling INNS within the Dee Catchment and many ways in which you can get involved with the project.
This website acts as a gateway to the Dee Invasive Non-Native Species Project. From here, you will be able to find information on INNS and biosecurity, submit species records and discover ways in which you can get involved with the projects work.
