Funding

Sonairte – the National Ecology Centre are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new project that will benefit our local wild species and habitats.

Funded by the EU LEADER programme

“The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas”

and supported by the Meath Local Action Group, Sonairte have commissioned a Local

Biodiversity Action Plan for this part of East Meath, encompassing the area between the River Nanny and River Boyne, and bordered to the west by the M50 motorway. We will be looking at how our natural and built areas may be managed in order to maximise their value for wildlife and biodiversity.

We have just commenced consultation on this project and we would love to hear from residents, landowners, business owners and anyone who cares about our local landscapes and biodiversity. A link to an online survey is available here: https://surveyhero.com/c/607b274d and will be available on our website http://www.sonairte.ie and posted on our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.

Social media channels. Paper questionnaire surveys will also be available at Sonairte Eco Shop and local Community Centres. The deadline for completion is the 19th of October 2020. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
