Community Invasive Non-Native Group; bringing people and the environment together to improve the health and wellbeing of both.

CINNG is a Local Action Group based in Cornwall and working throughout South West England. CINNG raises awareness of the adverse impacts of Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) on the natural environment and the ecosystem goods and services it provides. We work with community volunteers and relevant organizations (e.g. utility companies, national charities and government agencies) to conserve, protect and improve the natural environment by reducing the impact of INNS.

CINNG often work with other organisations including South West Lakes Trust, South West Water, CABI, National Trust, Cornwall Reptile and Amphibian Group and Cornwall Butterfly Conservation. This collaboration allows actions to have a greater impact and sharing of expert knowledge.

Current projects include: –

Marine pathways mapping

Rapid response planning

Zebra mussel control

Environmental social prescribing as a tool to engage and empower people

Production of awareness raising materials
