Biodiversity in our backyards with Juanita Browne.
One third of our 99 bee species are threatened with extinction from Ireland. This is because we have drastically reduced the amount of food (flowers) and safe nesting sites in our landscapes. The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan is about all of us, from farmers to local authorities, schools, gardeners and businesses, coming together to try to create an Ireland where pollinators can survive and thrive. This talk will introduce the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan, its approach as a shared plan of action across many sectors, the resources available, and will give a breakdown of actions for Biodiversity you can take in your garden.
