Workshop description:
This workshop has been included in the programme for 2020 in an effort to support Ireland’s growing community of followers who have an interest in nature, in championing it, protecting it and recording it, but simply don’t know where to start. If you want to know what exactly ‘biodiversity’ is, how it supports us socially, economically and ecologically, where you might find it, how you might recognise and identify it, and finally, how you might record it, then this is the workshop for you. N.B. this workshop is for beginner recorders and is the second of four repeat workshops on this topic that will be delivered in 2020.

Health & Safety:
Please be mindful that this workshop may include an element of teaching outdoors. Warm waterproof clothing and footwear are essential. As a rule of thumb, it is generally expected that any participants who sign up for a workshop that involves spending time in the outdoors will own and bring the appropriate outdoor clothing. Good walking boots and warm waterproof clothing are essential.

National Biodiversity Data Centre

http://www.biodiversityireland.ie

The National Biodiversity Data Centre is a national organisation for the collection, collation, management, analysis and dissemination of data on Ireland’s biological diversity. Biodiversity data are a key requirement for understanding our natural surroundings, for tracking change in our environment and for gaining a greater insight on how we benefit from, and impact upon, the ecosystem goods and services provided by biological diversity; a national asset which contributes at least €2.6 billion to the Irish economy each year. The Data Centre was established by the Heritage Council in 2007 and is funded by the Heritage Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The Centre is operated under a service level agreement by Compass Informatics Limited, an information and location technologies company focused on applications in natural resources and planning.
