Farming Together for Biodiversity Award

Farming Together for Biodiversity Award

Biodiversity is all the living organisms in a particular area. That is all the animals, plants and micro-organisms, and the habitats they depend on. Biodiversity is everywhere – from the biodiversity of planet Earth to the biodiversity of Ireland and the biodiversity of our back gardens. Ireland’s biodiversity is found in every village, townland, and farm and even in our cities. So, while biodiversity loss may be a global problem, an important response is to protect local biodiversity.

Farming Together for Biodiversity Award

Category E – Farmers working within conservation partnership projects

With this category we are directly engaging conservation partnership projects that are succeeding because of the farmers involved. There are lots of exciting projects happening around Ireland which involve farmers, scientists and policy makers working together to help save some of our most endangered species and most important habitats. We will be accepting nominations, from conservation partnership project, such as LIFE projects, E.I.P. projects. For details contact us at awards@iwt.ie
