Citizen Science

IWT Citizen ScienceThe Irish Wildlife Trust is a firm believer in Citizen Science, where members of the public actively engage in Wildlife Surveying.

The Irish Wildlife Trust develops projects involving elements of awareness raising, training and species surveying, so involving the public at different levels.

We are currently running a National Reptile Survey and are gathering data in the IWT Ladybird Survey.

Past projects have included smooth newt, common lizard and hedgerow surveys.
