Communication and Training Materials

RINSE has developed a number of different tools to raise awareness of the risks and impacts associated with invasive non-native species and more technical information on management techniques. These include leaflets, posters, Apps, ID guides and more targeted training packages for specific priority audiences, such as farmers and landowners.

The following communication materials were developed through the project and are freely available for download and use. 

Project leaflet - A basic introduction to the aims and objectives of RINSE, available in English, French and Dutch

An invasive species guide for farmers - Information on the identification, impacts and control of six invasive species found on farmland

RINSE have created two presentations which focus on six invasive non-native species commonly found across the farming landscape. These presentations contain detailed information on these six invasive species including:

  • Identification
  • Legislation
  • Management and Control
  • Eradication

These guides aim to offer a better understanding of the problems associated with these species, what your responsibility is and the different ways in which you can control and manage their spread. Please feel free to download our presentations for your own use:
