Kerry farming project nominated for Biodiversity Award

A Kerry farming project has been nominated for a Biodiversity Award.

 

The Irish Wildlife Trust’s Together for Biodiversity award highlights farmers who are working within conservation partnership projects.


 

The KerryLIFE Project aims to restore two of the largest national populations of freshwater pearl mussel in Caragh and Blackwater catchments.

 

The project works with 40 farmers and forest-owners to trial conservation measures to improve water quality and restore the habitat of the mussel.

 

The closing date for voting is January 14th and the details can be found on the Irish Wildlife Trust’s website.
