Cork Nature Network was established in 2015 by an experienced and enthusiastic team who wanted to make change using a bottom up approach to nature conservation. 

The group wanted anyone to be able to be involved in nature protection and conservation through awareness raising and education. 

Citizen science is a growing movement that involves everyday individuals in the process of scientific research & brings immense value to the scientific community and society.

By involving the public in data collection, analysis, and interpretation, this collaborative approach democratizes the research process, fostering a more inclusive and accessible environment for scientific exploration.
