Following on from our Deputation Meeting last Wednesday we received a copy of the area map from the Parks Department for the new pollinator site at Orby Park as part of the biodiversity programme.
Why pollinator sites?
Irish pollinators (such as honey bees, wasps, birds etc.) are in decline. The problem is serious and requires immediate attention to ensure the sustainability of our food production, avoid additional economic impact on the agricultural sector, and protect the health of the environment.
This is a shared plan of action. By working together we can collectively take steps to reverse pollinator losses and help restore populations to healthy levels.
By focusing on actions that can be taken on farmland, public land and private land, we want to achieve a joined-up network of diverse and flower-rich habitats to support pollinators across Ireland.
Orby Park Pollinator Site
DLRCC has advised that their contractor is expected to be on-site within the next 2-3 weeks to erect the appropriate signage and boundary.
This item was posted under Agenda Item 3, Parks, Biodiversity, Conservation & Habitat area. We will have a more comprehensive update to share with everyone soon.
