Nature's Blueprint: Unlocking sustainable solutions through science

Past event - 2024
15 May Doors Open 6:30pm
Start 7pm
End 9pm
Slattery's D1, 129 Capel St,
Dublin D01 YN83
Join us at Slattery's D1 on Wednesday, May 15th at 7pm to explore the relationship between gulls and people in Dublin City, the unusual dual role of badgers in Ireland, carbon storage in saltmarshes, use of organic biomarkers to identify carbon sources, and slimey seaweeds!

Conflict or Coexistence - The case of urban gulls

Adam Kane (Assistant Professor, University College Dublin)
I will discuss gull biology; the causes of conflict; and what we have found by tracking gull movements around Dublin. I will finish with some of the solutions to resolve the conflict and what the future holds for our noisy neighbours.

Irelands underwater forests

Simon Benson (PhD Researcher, Trinity College Dublin)
What are kelp forests? What even are kelp? And what makes Irish kelps so interesting? This talk will bring you on a journey through time and under the waves, putting our native kelp into the spotlight.

Love Them or Cull Them: The badger dilemma in Irish conservation

Virginia Morera-Pujol (Post-Doctoral Researcher, University College Dublin)
How is it possible that badgers are, at the same time, protected by law and legally culled in large numbers every year in Ireland? Are they good? Are they evil? We have 15 minutes to find out together!

Unlocking the carbon secrets of Ireland’s saltmarshes

Saule Akhmetkaliyeva (Post-Doctoral Researcher, University College Dublin)
Blue carbon ecosystems play an important role in capturing and storing carbon. Let’s delve into the world of organic biomarkers to explore the source of carbon in Irish saltmarshes.
