Welcome – Waterlife Recovery East was started in 2018 when partners from the long running East Anglian Mink and Water Vole Group joined with others from the fields of Wildlife Conservation, Water Management, Game Shooting and Fishing. All share the goal of bringing life back to the waterways and wetlands of East Anglia, through the removal of one highly damaging invasive, non-native species: the American Mink Neovison vison. The project aims for the humane removal of mink from a large part of East Anglia, which would also provide a meaningful test of the feasibility, cost and duration of a GB-wide eradication campaign.
