From watching for wildlife in Galway to relaxing woodlands strolls in Co. Waterford, get out and about in nature this summer!
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN GALWAY The Galway Branch is planning to run a number of wildlife walks this summer. These will include a guided trip to Omey Island in Connemara, where a small number of corncrakes breed each summer, and a ‘beach safari’ in Salthill in conjunction with the Galway Atlantaquaria, which will explore marine life on the shore. The group is also planning to run an otter survey of Galway city, and is looking for volunteers to help out (no experience necessary). The branch is also seeking otter experts who might be willing to lend their time to help lead a survey.
