The Horus Institute for Environmental Conservation and Development was founded in March, 2002, by a group of professionals concerned with the need for improving invasive alien species management and control in the field. The Institute has formed a network of collaborators in several areas of environmental sciences, such as professionals in civil society organizations, professors and researchers. Our common goal is to work for the conservation of natural areas and the restoration of degraded areas and ecosystem functions invaded by non-native species. This network is continually changing and is open to others who wish to collaborate.
