All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020 available for consultation

An All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020 is now available for consultation: http://pollinators.biodiversityireland.ie/home/all-ireland-pollinator-plan-2015-2020/

The draft All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020 has been developed by a 15 member steering group, representative of key stakeholders. The plan provides an important framework to bring together pollinator initiatives across the island of Ireland, and is the start of a process by which we can collectively take positive steps to protect Irish pollinators and the service they provide into the future. It proposes taking action across five areas. Within each area, targets have been set and actions have been identified to help achieve that target. A total of 21 targets and 51 actions are identified. In all cases there is scope for new initiatives and new ideas to address each target.

We hope that as many of you as possible will have a look at the draft plan and provide your feedback, so that when it is published later in the year it will be as constructive and positive a document for Irish pollinators as possible. Feedback should be provided through the following online survey form before the 1st March 2015: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/pollinator_plan
