Invasive Species Competition!

12 Jan 2017 Posted by in Environment, News and Events | Comments

The City of Cape Town’s Invasive Species Unit has launched a competition as part of the City’s Early Detection and Rapid Response (EDRR) initiative.

In order to control the spread of invasive species, the EDRR initiative has incorporated a Spotter Network whereby the aim is to collect information on the location of targeted invasive species before the population has established itself and becomes harder to control.

The competition involves spotting and reporting any targeted species on the EDRR list, and will run from 15 January – 9 April 2017.

For more information on how to win, and help curb unwanted invasive species please see the link to the poster below.
