When: Friday September 13th at 6.30 pm
6.30 – 7.00 pm: Peter Turner (MISE):
The MISE Project has been running since April 2011. During that time we have learned about pine marten, otters, squirrels, bats and small mammals in the region. Pete will discuss what we’ve learned about these species and how people have become involved in the project.
7.00 – 7.30 pm: Liam Lysaght (National Biodiversity Data Centre):
The Mammal Atlas is an exciting initiative that pulls together data from existing recording projects and datasets to provide an overview of the current and historic distribution of Irish mammals. One of the primary aims of the project is to encourage recording of the more common Irish mammals so that a comprehensive picture of their distribution is achieved by 2015. Liam will discuss the work to date, and what we can do to help.
