Invasive Non-Native Species Fund (INNS)​
Invasive non-native species are plants and animals that, with the assistance of humans, travel from their native areas to a new region and go on to cause problems for people, native wildlife and the economy. They reach us through transport, trade or recreational activities.​


INNS are increasing globally. In our region, they impact our water supply, the regional economy and our environment. That’s why it’s important we control or eradicate them.  We’re already working to control them at our sites, but we also provide funding to others working on INNS through our Invasive Species Fund. 
The fund is open once a year, from 1st November and the grant covers many activities such as the costs of eradication, equipment, and staff time. ​
