Student Invasive Non-Native Group

SINNG is a student Local Action Group based at Cornwall College, Newquay. Launched in 2010, we are working to increase action and awareness on INNS (Invasive Non-Native Species) and reduce the impacts INNS are currently having on native wildlife. Action includes practical fieldwork, research, public engagement and raising awareness.
