Celebrating the International Day for Biological Diversity in Ireland

Events held around Dublin for the week of 21-28 May

Events exploring nature in the City will be held on and around International Biodiversity Day 2006.
Biodiversity means the variety of life and Dublin City is rich in wildlife. This is because of the availability of green space and  wildland, as well as nature's ability to adapt to City life.
Some animals and plants are vulnerable and have a harder time surviving which means more attention is needed in many cases. Events highlighting these aspects of Dublin's heritage are planned during May 2006. Admission is free in all cases.
For further details contact Siobhán Egan, Biodiversity Officer, Dublin City Council. Tel. (01)2223400.

Events organised in the counties, with the assistance of the Heritage Council
