The IWT is conducting a survey of Ireland's native newt species and they need your help

If you would like to learn practical wildlife biology skills and help conserve one of Ireland's native amphibian species then register as a surveyor now. 

This is a volunteer based survey and will be operating in counties Galway, Dublin, Monaghan and Waterford. As a volunteer surveyor you will be trained by the IWT in newt surveying techniques as well as field data recording skills before being allocated a survey area in your county to visit three times from now until autumn. Training days are free for IWT members. The Galway training day will be taking place on Friday 21st May at 2:00 in the beautiful Brigit’s Garden in Roscahill Co. Galway. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
