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.

Hi everyone. A quick update to say, SINNG may have ended but I am very pleased to say that CINNG (Community Invasive Non-Native Group - a registered charity) will be building on the work our amazing volunteers have carried out since 2010. Our aim is to bring people and the environment together to improve the health and wellbeing of both. For now our focus is on the zebra mussel project which some of our former students are working with me on. We also hope to hold another Cornwall Invasive Species Forum in the near future. The conversations I have had with the Chair of Trustees have been hugely positive. The board are a great team and very supportive of our aims. Activity may be a little reduced at present but I hope to continue to work with many of you in the future and involve a broader range of community members throughout Cornwall. Nicola 🙂 ...
