The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - NEWS -

THIS Thursday night, Novem­ber 8, the last in the Au­tumn Talk Se­ries in the Gar­den Room, at Kil­lar­ney House, is en­ti­tled Where are all the In­sects gone” be de­liv­ered by Juanita Browne, who co­or­di­nates the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the All-Ire­land Pol­li­na­tor Plan, work­ing with coun­cils, com­mu­nity groups, schools and in­di­vid­u­als.

Juanita has a Zool­ogy de­gree and her back­ground is in Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, spe­cial­is­ing in nat­u­ral his­tory doc­u­men­taries, books and wildlife and her­itage mag­a­zines.

Her books in­clude ‘Ire­land’s Mam­mals’, ‘My First Book of Ir­ish An­i­mals’ and ‘The Great Big Book of Ir­ish Wildlife’, which is due out this Oc­to­ber 2018.

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.

All-Ire­land Pol­li­na­tor Plan Project Of­fi­cer Juanita Browne will ex­plain how you can be­come in­volved in this ex­cit­ing plan and make more room for na­ture.
