Ep 3 - Bogs

In Your Nature

Saturday, 15 July 2023 - 46 minutes

In this episode we chat about bogs. We welcome our first guest in Dr Catherine Farrell, an experienced peatland ecologist and researcher at Trinity College Dublin. We discuss the pressures our peatlands face and the opportunities for nature and fighting climate change when we restore and rehabilitate our damaged bogland habitats.

Species of the week is the Common Snipe.
