Public Talk: The Wildlife of the Copper Coast, Co. Waterford, 28th May 2014

 As part of European Geopark Week, Andrew Harrington of the MISE Project has been invited to give a talk on the wildlife of the Copper Coast at the Copper Coast Geopark Centre in the old Knockmahon Church, Bunmahon, Co. Waterford, starting at 8pm. The Copper Coast covers the Co. Waterford coastline from Dungarvan to Tramore and has been given the status of both European Geopark and Global Geopark for its geological and mining heritage. However, the area between the Copper Coast and the Comeragh Mountains is also rich in wildlife and has been the epicentre of much of the work that the MISE Project has carried out in Ireland. This talk will focus on some of the work that the MISE Project has carried out in Co. Waterford, and particularly the Copper Coast, including survey work for otters, red squirrels, pine martens, bats and stoats.
