Who is Cork Nature Network?

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. We strive to protect and promote Ireland’s wildlife through education, research and conservation. We aim to help restore a healthy, functioning ecosystem for both wildlife and human populations in Ireland. Increasing awareness surrounding conservation is central to achieving this goal, and we believe that through education and participation, we can enhance our communities while protecting our beautiful wildlife.

Why should I become a member?

There are many benefits of becoming a member of Cork Nature Network, whether you are looking to expand your network of contacts, increase your knowledge of Ireland’s wildlife and its habitats, learn new skills or give back to the community. Your support provides vital funding, which will be used to enable our work. Membership levels are individual, family and concession (child, unemployed, student, 65+).

What type of events do you organise?

Events are the heartbeat of our mission, designed to increase public awareness of issues impacting biodiversity. Events are family-friendly, free and open to the public, offering everyone a chance to become part of our conservation efforts. Whether you are a nature enthusiast, a family looking for educational outings, or someone interested in contributing to environmental conservation, our events calendar is packed with opportunities. From guided nature walks, citizen science surveys and informative talks, there is something for everyone. Our events are not just about learning, they are about experiencing nature firsthand and becoming an active participant in its preservation.

How can I attend an event?

All events are promoted on our website, social media channels and on Ticket Tailor.

If I find injured wildlife what should I contact?

We do not deal with wildlife rescue but recommend that anyone looking for help for an injured animal contact their local animal rescue centre at Irishwildlifematters.ie/rehabilitators or if it is a wildlife crime matter you wish to report please go to Paw Ireland
