Survey Details - Mullingar Community Biodiversity Action Plan 2020-2030
Mullingar Community Biodiversity Action Plan 2020-2030
This dataset was compiled as part of a Mullingar Tidy Towns initiative to develop a Community Biodiversity Action Plan. It was funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland. The surveys were undertaken in the summer of 2020 and this list should be read as a representative sample of the diversity of species in these areas of Mullingar and not a complete biodiversity species list. Mullingar Tidy Towns are encouraged within the Community Biodiversity Action Plan to continue to update this species list over the years.
To support the community develop a Community Biodiversity Action Plan and understand the diversity of biodiversity already present in the community
