Do you 'Check', 'Clean' and 'Dry' your fishing and water sport equipment after use?! Are you 'Plant Wise' in your garden?!

In Dumfries and Galloway, GFT sit alongside SEPA, SNH, Forestry Commission Scotland, River Annan Trust, Nith Catchment Fishery Trust, RSPB, Dumfries and Galloway Council (various departments) and Police Scotland on a working group to control invasive non-native species and raise awareness to halt their spread.

The group have recently introduced the two national campaigns to Dumfries and Galloway; 'Check, Clean, Dry' and 'Be Plant Wise'.  

Whether it be Japanese Knotweed, Canadian Pondweed or Parrot's Feather {plants} or North American Signal Crayfish, Killer Shrimp or Chinese Mitten Crab {living animals}, these two campaigns have been developed to work together at all levels to halt the spread of invasive non-native species; be it water users or gardeners.
