Coad Bog Bioblitz LogoJoin the Coad Bog BioBlitz: Friday 20th May to Friday 27th May 2016 Join IPCC for this week long scientific expedition to our newest reserve at Coad Bog in Co. Kerry. Volunteers are being sought to help a variety of scientists and naturalists investigate as many aspects of Coad Bog as possible in one week. We hope to record as many species as possible, to profile the shape of the bog, take a peat core, meet with local people, see the night sky, search for the Kerry Slug, measure the water level on the bog, block drains and anything else we can think of. If you have expertise and fancy a trip to Kerry please join in. There is a public awareness event on Tuesday 24th May at which we hope to meet as many people as possible. Download the Coad Bog BioBlitz Visitor Events Guide for more information and see our events link for even more details. If you can’t come to the bog but would like to help through making a donation please follow this link. The Coad Bog BioBlitz is supported by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Irish Environmental Network.

During the event you can keep up to date with the number of species recorded by clicking on the following links:
