About this Blog

Heir Island Wildlife Project aims to promote and preserve the natural and traditional look and feel of this West Cork island. We want to help with the proliferation of original island flora (including some unique and endangered species), fauna, and traditional pollinators through information and education, as well as to connect with the other inhabited and uninhabited islands of Roaringwater Bay.

While we take part in various activities (i.e. seaweed workshops, Coastwatch Survey, etc.) this blog is dedicated to one endeavor only: the maintenance of a specific road on Heir Island. It is very much a learning process as we want to study how flora and fauna can flourish with minimal but strategic human intervention. This blog serves as a record of our efforts, observations and discoveries.
