IWDG Junior Explorer Biodiversity Ireland Workshop

About this event

This year for National Biodiversity Week, the IWDG is hosting a virtual workshop for young ocean heroes thanks to the Irish Environmental Network.

Based on IWDG’s new educational resource, ‘Ireland’s Blubber Book; Flukes Junior Vol. 1’, the workshop will engage young people on the marine mammal biodiversity found in Irish waters and how they are helping tackle climate change.

Participants will also be encouraged to create a project (drawing, painting or poem) based on what they have learned during the presentation and submit it to IWDG education and outreach officer Sibéal Regan education@iwdg.ie to win some fantastic prizes.

Prizes are sponsored by the Irish Environmental Network and will be announced at the end of biodiversity week (Sunday the 23rd of May). To be in with a chance to win a prize, participants must register and attend the workshop.
