Marine invasive alien species incur significant economic costs and cause a considerable problem to our coastal environments by threatening the survival of native species by predation and competing for space, light and food.
Although the community of people who regularly use the outdoors for enjoyment or work, run the risk of spreading these invasive aliens, they are also in the important position of being able to act as early warning sentinels for alerting the authorities about their arrival and spread.
With this in mind the North Wales Wildlife Trust
and the North Wales Environmental Outdoor Charter Group
have organised a training session on Wednesday 26th February (7 p.m. - 9.30 p.m.) in order to help outdoor lovers, and activity instructors in particular, learn the basics about marine alien invasive species, how to minimise their spread and how as a community you can contribute to collecting vital data. The session will be relevant to marine and coastal species in north Wales.
This training will be awarded 0.5 CPD credits from the Mountain Training Association.
During this introductory training session the following topics will be covered:
- What is a marine invasive alien & what’s the problem?
- Species ID
- How to report sightings
The workshop is free of charge and participants will be given materials to take home and/or to distribute to clients. To book your place or for more info please contact email@example.com
or call on 01248 351541.
Food & Refreshments will be provided
for a downloadable flyer.
