Invasive non-native species, Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing, Writing

My Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing: £5.00 special offer from Merlin Unwin Books

Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing 2

Hard to believe a year has passed since my Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing was published, yet this is already the second summer when it’s been helping ordinary members of the public to start fighting back against invasive non-native species (INNS) in their local areas.

Now balsam (and floating pennywort, rhododendron, mink, grey squirrel etc…) bashing time is here again, my publishers at Merlin Unwin Books have come up with this brilliant offer to help local environmental groups including Rivers Trusts, Wildlife Trusts, Trout in the Town cells and conservation volunteers of all kinds to keep spreading the word about the battle against INNS.

When you buy 10 or more copies, you’ll pay just £5.00 per book – saving a full £2.99 off the usual RRP of £7.99.

The Pocket Guide to Balsam Bashing was written in close consultation with Defra’s Non-Native Species Secretariat, so it’s still the single most comprehensive guide to local action on INNS that’s available to anyone who’s not actually employed by Defra, Natural England, the Environment Agency, or their equivalents in Scotland and Ireland.

To take advantage of this great offer, and help spread the knowledge about INNS around your local environmental group, just call Merlin Unwin Books on 01584 877 456.

(Alternatively, if you’d prefer a single signed and dedicated copy, plenty of those are also available from my Urbantrout online shop).

Thanks for your support, and let’s carry on spreading the word and getting out there after those INNS this summer!
