Non-native species

We have projects dealing with Himalayan Balsam and American Mink within the catchment but welcome records of any non-natives in the area as they are easier to get under control or eradicate if they are dealt with early.

The Himalayan Balsam project is opperating throughout the Ivel catchment and Flit valley, more info can be found here:  Balsam project

We are working with the Waterlife Recovery Trust on Mink eradication in the region, more details can be found on their website here:  Mink Project

Information on Non-native species is readily available through the GB Non Native Species Secretariat.
