Help us with our Roundwood & District Community Biodiversity Action Plan by submitting your sightings of birds, insects, mammals, flowers and all the wildlife you see in the area on the National Biodiversity Database . There’s lots of help with identification online, so get spotting and recording! The National Biodiversity Data Centre works to make biodiversity data and information more freely available in order to better understand and assist the protection of Ireland’s biodiversity. By recording your sighting you are adding to this important scientific knowledge through citizen science. There is also a county league.
