Seasonal Nature Resources

Biodiversity looks at steps which can be taken in schools to increase awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats, and to increase species-richness in a locality.

Summer Biodiversity Challenge

Our Challenge for you this Summer is to feed the bees!

Take an action to help pollinators in your school! Bees are the most important pollinators in Ireland and we rely on them to help lots of our favourite foods like apples and strawberries grow and to keep our habitats healthy! But a third of our wild bees are threatened by extinction. There are lots of simple actions we can take to help provide food to hungry bees! As we get closer to the summer holidays, one brilliant action you can take is to get involved in the “Pitches for Pollinators” campaign. If your school has a pitch usually used for GAA, soccer or games that will be lying empty for the summer, why not let the grass grow for the bees! If you don’t have a pitch there are plenty of other ways to help– from planting up pollinator friendly window boxes to avoiding using pesticides. Check out theTop 10 Actions for Pollinators” to get some ideas! To learn more about our pollinators you can check out the Junior Pollinator Plan.
