Earth Day 2016 - Dublin Zoo, Ireland.

Earth Day 2016

To mark Earth Day, Dublin Zoo hosted a new event called Greenfest on 23-24 April. A selection of Irish organisations joined forces for a weekend of discovery and learning in celebration of Ireland’s wildlife. Visitors learned about the planet we live on, sustainability, native wildlife, composting, wind turbines and where our food comes from. Ten organisations that advocate Irish wildlife and/or sustainability set up stalls in a large marquee or in the Farmhouse in Family Farm. These included The Irish Wildlife Trust, BirdWatch Ireland, The National Museum of Ireland, The National Dairy Council, Bord Bia and Galway Atlantaquaria. There were plenty of hands-on activities and conversations about conservation. Agri Aware highlighted sustainable food practices in Family Farm and the volunteers set up lots of fun activities about native wildlife in the Roberts House.
