Life in the Uplands

Webinar explores life in the uplands

The next in the tri-Biosphere webinar series with Kerry and Dublin Bay Biospheres explores 'Life in the Uplands'.

UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man has joined up with Ireand's Biospheres for monthly webinars marking the 50th anniversary of the Man and the Biosphere Programme.

Kerry will host the next webinar, on 18th May at 12 noon.

The MacGillycuddy Reeks are Ireland's highest mountain range with the tallest peak Carrountooohil reaching 1,038.6metres high.

The area is privately owned and farmed by several families, but hill walkers are granted access and the mountain sees over 125,000 visitors a year.

The MacGillycuddy Reeks are also a designated special area of conservation. This offers protection to some the protected species and habitats that can be found there.

The webinar will explore how conservation, farming and recreation are managed.

Joining Kerry's Biosphere Coordinator Eleanor Turner will be Noel Doyle from Leave No Trace Ireland, Patricia Deane from the MacGillycuddy Reeks Forum and European Innovation Partnership Project-EIP and farmers who spend their lives on the mountains.
