INNS Out is a programme to support partnership projects that work towards preventing the introduction and spread of INNS especially where they have a detrimental impact on waterbodies or designated sites.
Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) are species that have been introduced by people (deliberately or accidentally) and are having a negative impact on the economy, wildlife and/or habitats. INNS threaten native species by spreading harmful diseases, out-competing for resources, or damaging a natural ecosystem.
We're committed to protecting and enhancing the species and habitats on our sites and across the catchments in which we operate. As part of this commitment, we've set up the INNS Out scheme to support projects which prevent the introduction or spread of INNS where such projects will prevent the deterioration of a waterbody or reduce the threat to an environmentally designated site.
The purpose of the scheme is to enable local organisations, community groups or individuals from the public, private, voluntary and education sectors to address INNS risks within the catchments where we operate. Multi-stakeholder applications are also encouraged as combining interests, resources and capabilities will improve environmental outcomes.
Applications are now open and close 15th Jan 2024 at 23:59
