Helping to preserve our environment
As a small start we are asking members to consider contributing to the Irish Peatland Conservation Council‘s frog survey.
If you use this link to the National Frog Survey you will find details and, scrolling down, an online form which you can fill in after a hike and send directly.
Here is a link to a Frog Survey Card which you can print out. It is a simplified version of the online form and you may like to have it on your hike.
You’ll need to provide a grid reference which is no problem if you have a smart phone – just download the Irish Grid Ref Compass app It will cost you €1.
