What is the Exmoor Non-Native Invasive Species Project?

The Project is a partnership of Exmoor National Park Authority, National Trust, Environment Agency, Natural England and Nicky Green Associates and is funded through a Water Environment Grant through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and Defra.

The Exmoor Non-Native Invasive Species Project is helping to control the spread of invasive non-native species on Exmoor through trialling innovative approaches and working with local communities and volunteers to tackle species such as Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam, montbretia, skunk cabbage and signal crayfish.

What is a non-native invasive species?

‘any non-native animal or plant that has the ability to spread causing damage to the environment, the economy, our health and the way we live’ (GB Secretariat definition)
