Just where are all the insects gone?
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.

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.
