The Norfolk Non-native Species Initiative was launched in 2008 to promote the prevention, control and eradication of invasive, alien species.
It seeks to do this by:
- Collating and monitoring data on the distribution and spread of non-native species in the county;
- Developing action plans to address the species of most urgent concern;
- Facilitating control and eradication projects at high priority sites;
- Promoting awareness of the risks and impacts associated with non-native species.
The Initiative has been established under the umbrella of the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership and works through a stakeholders' forum comprised of representatives from over 20 organisations. It is financially supported by the Broads Authority, the Environment Agency, Natural England, Norfolk County Council and the Water Management Alliance.
