Saving Ireland's Nature and Natural Habitats

The Collins Press are delighted that three of their authors will be on a panel during Dublin Book Festival: Zoë Devlin, Padraic Fogarty and Richard Nairn will be in conversation with Ella McSweeney about Saving Ireland’s Nature and Natural Habitats. This event is in association with National Botanic Gardens.

Ireland boasts some of the most breathtaking natural beauty in the world but 21st-century living threatens to envelop it. The question remains: how are we affecting our surroundings, and how can we save them?

Join us for an afternoon of discussion on sustainable environmental development with some of our nation’s leading experts.

Ecologist Pádraic Fogarty is editor of the magazine Irish Wildlife and author of Whittled Away: Ireland’s Vanishing Nature (The Collins Press).

Also passionate about our natural heritage is Zoë Devlin, author of Blooming Marvellous: A Wildflower Hunter’s Year (The Collins Press).

Environmental consultant Richard Nairn was the director of BirdWatch Ireland and his previous books include Wild Wicklow (Town House) and Ireland’s Coastline (The Collins Press). His latest book is Dublin Bay – Nature and History (The Collins Press).

The conversation will be led by reporter Ella McSweeney, an Irish food and farming journalist with a particular interest in zoology.
