IEM Pre-meet seminar: Protecting and Connecting Our Invertebrate Habitats

Thursday 23rd March, 2023 - 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Online via Zoom

Join us for this online seminar to discuss how we can protect and connect our invertebrate habitats, and the mapping tools to help.

At our second Irish Entomology Meeting online pre-meet, meet some of conservation experts challenging how we look at habitats and designations for our invertebrates. The idea of these meetings is to enjoy a talk from experts and join in on a discussion to debate issues influencing or impacting our invertebrates, from data deficiency to climate change to policy and legislation reform.

In this online pre-meet we will be chatting to Nina Schoenberg from Ulster Wildlife to discuss what Nature Recovery Networks are all about and how they may influence invertebrates, and follow up with Buglife’s very own Jamie Robins to consider progress of Important Invertebrate Areas in England & Wales, and how they may influence how we look at improving conservation for invertebrates in Ireland. We will follow this up with an open discussion.
