The Norfolk Non-Native Species Initiative (NNNSI) was launched in 2008 to promote the prevention, control and eradication of invasive non-native species (INNS).

Our aims include:
- Collecting data to monitor the locations and spread of INNS across Norfolk
- Developing action plans to tackle problematic species
- Helping to put in place control and eradication projects at high priority sites
- Raise awareness of the risks and impacts associated with INNS
- Providing INNS advice and guidance to members of the public
The NNNSI is hosted by Norfolk County Council, with financial support from the Broads Authority, Environment Agency, Natural England, Water Management Alliance and Norfolk County Council.
