What is natural when it comes to nature and what do we mean by ‘wild’? Humans have dramatically changed the landscape on the island of Ireland and altered the composition of its wildlife. Ireland now has the lowest tree cover in Europe, however it’s not just the trees that have disappeared, many birds and key insects including bees have declined too. If we’re looking to restore Ireland’s nature in a landscape where humans need to live and work, what should we be aspiring to restore it to?
Join a panel of experts from government, academia and the NGO sector for a lively discussion of ‘how wild is wild?’

The panel will be announced in the coming weeks, so do check in for updates.
This is a fringe event to the British Ecological Society’s 2019 Annual Meeting, taking place from 10-13 December at the Belfast International Conference Centre.
In partnership with the Irish Ecological Association.
