We can help control invasive species such as giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam and floating pennywort. Invasive plants and wildlife can damage native wildlife, infrastructure, river banks, health and the economy.
Your local partnership can
- Advise how to treat or remove species specific invasive plants
- Raise awareness about the threat which non native species pose
- Advise on grants for landowners
- Improve overall biodiversity
- Help gather information about invasive species.
- Biological recording
Biological recording provides information about what species are present on areas of land. The information is used to help people manage green spaces in a way which doesn’t harm animals and plants already there. It also helps measure whether management is being successful.
If you’re a landowner, local or statutory authority we can help you monitor wildlife on your land. Ways we can help include:
- Water vole and otter surveys on waterways
- Surveys for management plans
- Farm environment plans
- European protected species surveys
- Meeting statutory obligations such as NERC Act.
