SWT's Growing Up Wild Tour

Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s campaign to create and share memories of growing up wild outside will be on tour throughout the autumn. The project has seen nearly 100 stories of exploring and playing in the Suffolk countryside from winters and summers gone-by. Launched in May 2016, the project, which is designed to capture the oral histories of outside play, also paints a picture of a landscape that the Trust is working hard to protect and restore. Growing Up Wild has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund with further support from Essex & Suffolk Water’s Branch Out Fund.

Himalayan balsam control project

Norfolk Non-native Species Initiative (NNSI) is working with CABI, an environmental research agency, to develop a management solution for Himalayan balsam.

CABI has identified a species of rust fungus known to be a natural enemy to Himalayan balsam in its native range. The fungus underwent lengthy specificity testing within controlled laboratory conditions before it was approved for release in 2014.
