NOW SOME GOOD NEWTS! DONEGAL TO HOLD NEW WILDLIFE SURVEY

first_imgThe Irish Wildlife Trust has announced that their smooth newt survey will be running again in 2012 and are calling on people across Donegal to once again get out and search their local pond for newts!The smooth newt is one of our few native amphibian species and this survey aims to increase our knowledge of the distribution of the species.We also hope to make Irish people more familiar with this little ‘water dragon’, so that they will value it as part of our natural heritage. This year the group will be focussing our efforts in counties where we currently have few or no records, including county Donegal. A training day will be taking place on April 07th at Glenveagh National Park.If you would like to attend the training day, you must register with us. Members of the Irish Wildlife Trust and unwaged can attend the workshop for free. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.To register as a surveyor or for more information contact Dr Daniel Buckley at [email protected] or on 0863691982 or check out our website www.iwt.ieThis project is funded by Dublin zoo and Fota Wildlife Park.
