Training, training and more training!
These last two weeks, we've done a lot of training with the Nature Reserves Team. There are lots of topics in the world of nature conservation and we’ve been introduced to a few of them. We have worked at some of the nature reserves as well.
We attended the "Identification of Invasive and Injurious species" training at Bog Meadows Nature Reserve with Lantra Awards. It’s important to control and eradicate non-native invasive species because they are considered one of the most important causes of biodiversity loss, endangering native species. Some of them are found at our natures reserves, such as Himalayan Balsam, Japanese knotweed, and Spanish Bluebell.
