Description

Under the banner of the Animal and Plant Health Agencies (APHA) Rapid Life programme, Tame Valley Wetlands and South Cumbria Rivers Trust are collaborating to host a one-day workshop on ALERT (Priority) Invasive Non-native Species and Biosecurity.

The workshop will consist of a morning session (ALERT species identification and reporting) and an afternoon session (Biosecurity), and will focus on raising awareness on priority invasive species across the UK and Midlands region, training on identification, recording and reporting of these target species, and on a variety of biosecurity measures and how to construct a biosecurity plan. Workshop participants will be provided with materials on ALERT/Priority Invasive Non-Native Species of concern, including I.D sheets and biosecurity posters.

The workshop will be held on 3rd October 2019 at Middleton Hall (near Tamworth, Staffordshire (B78 2AE)) from 9am – 4:30pm and will be run by Rebecca Corrie-Close from the South Cumbria Rivers Trust.

Tea/coffee and a light lunch (sandwich and snack) will be provided. A small shop is available for other refreshments.
