*UPDATE: EVENT IS CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED. DUE TO DEMAND WE WILL BE ADDING ADDITIONAL TRAINING DATES. WATCH THIS SPACE*
The island of Ireland contains a border, but our cold blooded fauna don’t appreciate that, so any effort to understand their natural distribution on the island obviously requires close collaboration between organisations on each side of the border. As such, The Herpetological Society of Ireland are delighted to announce our participation in a new cross-border initiative to survey the island’s herpetofauna.
HSI Science Officers Rob Gandola and Collie Ennis, along with officers from ARGUK and ARC, will be offering training to facilitate herpetofauna surveys by NIEA officials and members of the general public.
We will also be involved in surveying some high value sites in Northern Ireland that are currently data deficient.
The training will take place on Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th March. Watch this space for updates on how to get involved!
