Join us for a webinar on the importance of the EU Nature Restoration Law and what it means agriculture and nature. After a quick overview of the law and what has happened so far, we will hear from Dr. Guy Pe’er, who specialises in agroecology and conservation biology. He has a particular interest in agriculture, the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and how it affects both people and nature.

Bring binoculars and telescopes if you have them, but the branch should have some to share.
And there will be some clambering – so sensible footwear is required.
And remember to wrap up well.
Join us for an in person screening of Fair Seas latest film ‘The Atlantic Northwest.’ The film recently won the award of Exceptional Merit at the Documentaries Without Borders International Film Festival and has been selected as a finalist for the Big Blue Film Festival in Oregon USA. The film spoke to different stakeholders including anglers, divers, tourism operators and seafood producers on what the ocean means to them and how they think Marine Protected Areas will affect their local area.
After the screening we will have a panel discussion focused around Marine Protected Areas in Ireland and the chance to discuss ideas with a number of experts from different fields.
