Antrim and Newtownabbey District Council will hold a Wildlife recording event over a 24-hour period, with walks and events to involve the local public. The event will raise awareness of biodiversity in the Lough Neagh wetlands and introduce people to wildlife recording, how they can get started, what to do with their records and how to link information to CEDaR. The project will increase wildlife recordings and get over 200 local people involved in recording wildlife in the Lough Neagh, engage residents in collecting wildlife records, hold 2 events, 4 walks and 4 talks, and increase the local communities understanding of the variety of species that are in their area and develop linkages with the scientific and farming.
