The Wild Wednesday Webinars is a series webinars on the themes of farming, nature and heritage. Co-hosted by the Burrenbeo Trust and the Farming for Nature initiative, they will take place every Wednesday between 8 and 9pm, over the next few weeks. Each webinar will give us an opportunity to virtually meet and listen to a guest speaker as they talk about their ideas, experiences and lessons they have learned in their area of work. There will also be a chance to interact with them through a Q and A session. This series of webinars opens with our very own, Brendan Dunford.
‘Farming & Biodiversity in the Burren – Lessons I have learned’
With Dr. Brendan Dunford

In a 40 minute illustrated presentation, Brendan will share some of the lessons he has learned from working with farmers and nature in the Burren over the past two decades. This will include some of the background to the work of the Burrenbeo Trust and the Burren LIFE Project, and will also go on to discuss how the Burren Programme has pioneered a new approach to support farmers in delivering better outcomes for nature and heritage on their farms. Brendan will also outline the thinking behind the Farming for Nature Project, his hopes for the future of farmland biodiversity in Ireland and how people can support these projects in various ways. His talk will be followed by 15 minutes of Q & A.
