The #givenatureachance campaign is born with one simple, but very important goal in mind. That is to promote the well-being of Ireland’s wildlife by raising awareness and educating the public.
These are difficult times; for most of us, how we work, how we socialise, has changed. In the midst of COVID-19, We all feel a sense of uncertainty towards the future. However, there is a silver lining to be found. Slowing down, spending more time in gardens and local parks, is leading to an increased awareness towards nature. Social Media posts, articles and pictures, show how nature starts to thrive on it’s own, when it is given a chance.
This has been the inspiration behind our new campaign “#givenatureachance”
We want us all to come together and use the tools at our disposal, such as social media and digital platforms to teach about the natural world around us, and provide simple facts and tips how anyone can actively help give nature a chance. We want to transmit the passion Cork Nature Network has for nature, to show that anyone can get involved and help promote biodiversity.
