We in the Island know what a special place it is – but we must tell visitors and potential visitors, too.
The Irish Sea, with its surrounding coastal lands and river basins, islands and islets, is a semi-enclosed marine ecosystem, connected to the wider Celtic Seas and the North Atlantic.
The Villa Marina is replacing single-use plastic glasses with more durable, reusable versions.
In the morning, (10.30am) children will make bird feeders and use up waste plastic in creative ways for wildlife. In the afternoon (1.30pm), adults will learn to ditch plastic by making beeswax wraps, microplastic-free cosmetics and air fresheners.
What does it mean to be a small Island Biosphere Reserve in the context of climate change, environmental degradation and a world in flux?
Simon’s talk is richly illustrated by his photographs and films. You will learn how to bridge the gap between the wild world and your own. Simon shares his unique, first- hand knowledge on animal tracks and signs, mimicry and observation skills, peppered with stories of wild encounters from the UK and beyond. There will be a Q&A session at the end of his talk.
