Tees Invasive Species Initiative
This project employs a co-ordinator to develop and promote best practice approaches to controlling and eradicating invasive non-native species (INNS) in Teesdale and co-ordinate the efforts of volunteer groups at the local level to achieve the most effective results. The project is fundamentally volunteer-led and they have mapped species and carried out work. Risk assessments have been undertaken for species at high risk of entering the area and have identified control mechanisms to prevent encroachment of new species. The co-ordinator ensures that volunteers have access to training and knowledge, helps to maintain momentum and support for the initiative, feeds results and reporting successes onto the Tees Initiative’s website and also reports progress at a national level.
This project is now complete.
