RAPID Life Workshops

Over the last couple of months, we have been organising freshwater biosecurity workshops throughout the midlands region.

Under the Animal and Plant Health Agencies (APHA) banner, RAPID life is a three-year EU Life funded project, aiming to deliver measures that will reduce the impact and spread of IAS (Invasive Alien Species) in freshwater aquatic, riparian and coastal environments across England; you also may know them as Invasive Non-Native species (INNS). The country has been split in to 5 regions and SCRT are covering the Midlands and the North.

Rebecca Corrie Close, our INNS officer, has been delivering workshops across the region, with fantastic feedback to date.

We have a further two FREE workshops coming up in Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire, with focus on freshwater biosecurity and invasive species control. Particular focus will be on cause, risk, transference and prevention. The course is perfect for water asset managers.
