STOPPING INVASIVE SPECIES
A new free online tool has been launched to help sailors identify alien species in Welsh waters. The Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) Portal is part of the National Biodiversity Network Atlas Wales, run by the National Biodiversity Network charity in partnership with the Welsh Government and Natural Resources Wales. The portal includes more than 300 terrestrial, freshwater and marine species of interest to Wales, and can be used by boaters to identify and report non-native species. Species occurrences and distribution can also be searched for and downloaded. The portal can be accessed at https://wales. nbnatlas.org.
