RTE Nationwide Visits Balbriggan Community College

May 1, 2012 0

The RTE Nationwide team visited Balbriggan Community College today to film and report on the students involvement with the Rockabill Roseate Tern Conservation Project. Three woodwork teachers, Mr Harford, Mr Macken, Mr Jim Boylan and numerous students have constructed close on 1000 nest boxes for the project as part of the Conservation Project. Some of the students will get to visit the Rockabill when the nests will be transported in the coming weeks

Well done to the students involved as their work is making a real impact on the conservation project as the Roseate Tern breeding numbers have risen from a serious low of 150 pairs in 1989 to over 1,000 pairs in 2011.
