Whittled Away, Ireland's Vanishing Nature - a talk at Bangher Library



This event has now been postponed until Thursday 8th February, 2018. 


Whittled Away - Banagher Library


Padraic Fogarty of the Irish Wildlife Trust will read from his recently released book Whittled Away: Irelands Vanishing Nature charting the environmental failures and possibilities for the future.


Pádraic Fogarty authoritatively charts how this grim failure to manage our natural resources has impoverished our country. But all is not lost: he also reveals the possibilities for the future, describing how we can fill our seas with fish, farm in tune with nature, and create forests that benefit both people and wildlife. He calls for the return of long-lost species like wild boar, cranes and wolves, showing how nature and wildlife can recover hand in hand.
