Caring For Wild Animals

Please note that many species of mammals, birds, invertebrates etc... are protected under law and that, even with the best of intentions, only someone holding a relevant licence from the National Parks & Wildlife Service should attempt the care of these animals.  For full details, please click here to read the NPWS Checklist of protected & rare species in Ireland.  If you are concerned about a wild animal, please contact your local wildlife ranger - click here for details.

There's a variety of wildlife and nature programmes on radio and TV at the moment - here are some of our highlights of the week. If you notice something that you think would be of interest to our listeners, please let us know by e-mailing mooney@rte.ie!
