EU Invasive Species regulation


Dr Niall Moore, Head of the GB Non-native Species Secretariat

Niall Moore has been Head of the Secretariat since it was established in March 2006.  The Secretariat is based at the Animal and Plant Health Agency (an executive agency of Defra) in York but it reports to the GB Programme Board that co-ordinates policy on non-native species issues for GB.  Prior to taking up his job at the secretariat in 2006 post Niall worked at several Defra agencies as a team leader leading on the ruddy duck and Hebridean mink eradication programmes.  He has a PhD in Zoology from the National University of Ireland on fallow deer.  Niall was also seconded to the European Commission for four months in 2012 during the development of the EU IAS Regulation during which time he worked mainly on species listing.
