The Heritage Council have announced the findings of their recent research on awareness, understanding and impact of biodiversity in Ireland and it isn’t exactly pretty reading, but mirrors the global findings that were recently reported at the CBD SBSTTA in May:

Brings to mind MS Swaminathan recently highlighting the need for a Biodiversity Literacy Movement. The sooner the better. Biohappiness for all, as he would say.
