Student Invasive Non-Native Group

SINNG is a student Local Action Group based at Cornwall College, Newquay. Launched in 2010, we work to increase action and awareness on INNS (Invasive Non-Native Species) and reduce the impacts INNS have on native wildlife. Action includes practical fieldwork, research, public engagement and raising awareness.

If you want to submit a sighting of an invasive species you can do so here.
