STOP­PING IN­VA­SIVE SPECIES

Practical Boat Owner - - Regional News -

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.
