Register Now!


The National Biodiversity Data Centre has released its latest round of training and identification workshops.

Our first workshop of the Summer Autumn 2019 Workshop Programme is an introduction to recording Ireland’s moths!

The delivery of an annual workshop programme is a crucial part of the National Biodiversity Data Centre’s role, that aims to support the recording and citizen science network in Ireland, building on and improving Ireland’s recording base. The first half of the year has flown by and was immensely successful in terms of attracting interested participants to take part in training workshops around the country.

Check out our 5 ‘Professional workshops’ in our new programme.

The Spring Summer 2019 Workshop Programme is still ongoing with 4 more workshops left to take place. Nevertheless, some 262 registrations have been documented out of a total 280 available places across the entire programme to date. With over 90% of places filled the demand is most certainly there for the type of training that is currently being offered by the National Biodiversity Data Centre – it is a real positive, that more are more people seem keen to engage with biodiversity, learn more about it and to track its occurrence and distribution in Ireland.

In 2019’s Summer Autumn workshop programme, we are delighted to be able to partner up with several organisations and recognised experts from the field of ecology and biological recording to bring you 15 workshops to choose from.
