Red Kite Community Talk - 14th April 2012 at 10.30am Woodenbridge Hotel

The Golden Eagle Trust Presents:

'Red Kites Return' a public talk on the reintroduction of the species to Wicklow.

Red Kites were extinct in Ireland for over 200 years. Between 2007 and 2011 the Golden Eagle Trust in partnership with National Parks & Wildlife Service and Welsh Kite Trust re-introduced 120 Red Kites to County Wicklow. The project has been funded and supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Coillte, Greenstar Ireland, KPMG and The Heritage Council.

The project team will give a presentation to share the highs and lows over the past five years.

This event is sponsored and supported by Wicklow County Council.
