The Kerry and Dublin Bay Biosphere reserves have teamed up to deliver a webinar series to showcase the biodiversity value of either biosphere reserve. The webinar series will comprise four sessions of one hour duration each. We are delighted to be joined by experienced educators to discuss Ireland's birds, bats, pollinators, and sustainability in schools. The webinars are free and are aimed at primary school children. Each webinar session will be recorded and posted on our YouTube pages.

Our first webinar in the series will be delivered by Dr Allan Mee, an ecologist with almost 40 years experience. Dr Mee has particular expertise in orthinology and is perhaps best known for his hard work as the manager of the Golden Eagle Trust and the reintroduction of the White-tailed Sea Eagle. Dr Mee will discuss the merits of the Kerry Biosphere and Dublin Bay Biosphere reserve for bird species and the diversity of bird life in Ireland.

For our second webinar in the series we are delighted to be joined by Dale Treadwell from Naturally Wild. Dale has previously worked for the Austrailian National Parks and Wildlife Service, and has presented on childrens television in Ireland for ten years. Dale is well known for his energetic presentatons, and his enthusiasm for wildlife in Ireland. We will be joined by Dale on Tuesday the 6th of June at 10am.

Kate Chandler is the Communities and Engagement Officer for the All Ireland Pollinator Plan. Kate will join us on Tuesday 13th of June at 10am for a free webinar to discuss Ireland's pollinators and how valuable pollinators are to us and biodiversity. This webinar is sure to be full of interesting talking points for pupils and teachers alike!

Lastly, we are thrilled to host Conor Kellher, a recognised bat expert. Conor has fantastic knowledge on the ecology and behaviour of Ireland's bat species and will be presenting a webinar on bats on Tuesday the 20th of June. This webinar is sure to encourage us to pay more attention to our flying mammals and perhaps have a greater appreciation for Ireland's bat species.
