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)
Project film and update
On Thursday 9th December the ENNIS Project gave an update on some of the invasive species management happening on Exmoor and showed an exclusive preview of our new short film, which you can watch below. A big thank you to South West Water for funding the film and to Gemma Gilbert (Ebb and Flow Media) for producing it.
If you would like to see the recording of the event follow the link to Youtube to watch the ENNIS Project Update and Film Premier 2021.
