Coillte Nature - Biodiversity planting in Ireland's Forests!
Mooney Goes Wild - Listen to Éanna Ní Lamhna's interview with Dr. Ciarán Fallon, Director of Coillte Nature explain how Coillte and Forestry Partners have developed a new initiative to deliver new non-commercial native woodlands in communities across Ireland.
The Nature Trust aims to create new native woodlands with four key benefits:
Climate benefits through independently verified carbon sequestration and storage
Biodiversity benefits through the creation of valuable habitat for nature
Community health and wellbeing benefits through the provision of free, public access recreational amenities such as tracks and trails
Education and engagement benefits through partnerships with schools, universities and the staff of participating organisations
