Where have all the insects gone?
Practical steps on how to make gardens pollinator friendly.
Presenter: Juanita Browne, Natural Biodiversity Data Centre
Juanita coordinates implementation of the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan working with the National Biodiversity Data Centre.
One third of our 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, to schools, gardeners and businesses, coming together to try to create an Ireland where pollinators can survive and thrive.
Juanita’s background is in communications, specialising in natural history documentaries, books and wildlife and heritage magazines.
