As part of Science Week 2018 which took place in November, the CANN project was host to INVAS Biosecurity who delivered biosecurity training to key stakeholders of Lough Arrow, a CANN project site. The Science Week event which took place in IT Sligo was well attended, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all participants.
Participants had the opportunity to learn about invasive species, the impacts they can have, and how to stop them spreading, as well as taking part in practical, hands-on invasive species identification training.
The CANN project team hope to follow up on the training by installing biosecurity boxes around Lough Arrow in the near future to be used by local stakeholders in safeguarding the biodiversity of the lake.
The CANN project is supported by the INTERREG VA programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
