The Marsh Fritillary (Eurodryas aurinia) is a butterfly in need of urgent conservation action, but in order to help, we need to understand the species better, locate suitable breeding habitat and monitor its population.

This free workshop will provide training in the skills needed to identify, survey and monitor both the species and the habitat it relies on, following the All-Ireland Marsh Fritillary Monitoring Scheme, a programme led by the National Biodiversity Data Centre (NBDC). 
No experience is necessary and everyone is welcome!
