On Monday the 15th of April RCC 2nd years went on a trip today to Carrownagappul Bog, Mountbellew Co. Galway to bring the topic of Ecology to life. This bog is known as Galway’s Living Bog as it is one of the few remaining bogs that is still absorbing carbon. It is 1200 hectares and is a habitat for many birds and other wildlife. On the day, students watched an informative video and were given a talk by a tour guide, Marie. Marie gave extensive information on the interesting history of the bog, she explained the various species in the area, how important the bog is for biodiversity and for acting as a carbon sink. Thanks so much to all at Galway’s Living Bog for a great day out.
