Nature Watch during Covid

Here are some photographs 5th & 6th class took during the lock down. It was National Biodiversity Week from the 18th to 22nd May and we learned about common wildflowers growing in our local area.

We also learned about how important wildflowers are to the bees and we did some research on bees on World Bee Day on May 20th. We have 98 wild bee species in Ireland, 21 of which are bumblebees. 30% are threatened with extinction. Our tendency to ‘tidy up’ the landscape rather than allowing wildflowers to grow along roadsides, field margins, and in parks and gardens is playing a big part in reducing resources for bees.
