Biodiversity in Donabate

We have been working with Hans Visser, Biodiversity officer for Fingal Co. Co. to produce a Biodiversity plan for Donabate. This is a long term project and will bring many different groups working in Donabate together: Tidy Towns, The Donabate Portrane Community Council, Schools, Fingal Co. Co, Conservation Ireland volunteers, Birdwatch Ireland members, the scouts and residents' associations. Some of the plans include creating wildflower areas, scaling back the managed and mowed green areas and allowing them to return to a wilder state to encourage wildlife, a cultivation programme for the endangered Portrane Poppy, encouraging bird boxes in housing estates, planting more sustainable, native species of plants and shrub, replanting and protecting hedgerows and completing wildlife surveys.

If you have a contribution to make on this plan or want to be involved in any way please let us know: donabatetidytowns@dub.ie or 085 1264660 (Blaithin)
