Ramsar World Wetland Day 2015 at Bull Island

Ramsar World Wetland Day 2015 at Bull Island:

Fifth year biology and geography students from Newtown School in Waterford enjoyed a day out at both Trinity College and the beautiful Bull Island on this year’s Ramsar World Wetland Day. While visiting Bull Island, they learned more about the UNESCO Biosphere site and took a look at the bird nesting grounds and beaches surrounding the reserve. Students also partook in a seashell identification game, collecting as many different species of both bivalves and gastropods, laying them all out, and analyzing the different biodiversity that could be found on Bull Island.
