Kilkenny Wildlife Detective Programme

Did you know that ladybirds smell with their feet? Or that you can tell different species of bumblebees apart by the colour on their bums!

Kilkenny Wildlife Detectives, a colourful fold-out activity leaflet and accompanying poster, has many activities and interesting facts about Kilkenny’s wildlife, and encourages children to explore the biodiversity and habitats of Kilkenny.  Learn how to be a good Wildlife Detective, make a nature note of what you see, or take a quiz, and have fun!
