Nuala Madigan is the Environmental Education Officer with the Irish Peatland Conservation Council and for the past thirteen years has facilitated workshops with schools and community groups throughout the island of Ireland. Nuala is passionate about Irish peatlands accepting that they have been a source of fuel for this country but believes with so many alternatives available today it is time to celebrate and highlight the hidden values of Irish peatlands including their carbon storage and water holding capacity to the unique flora and fauna of this habitats.

The talk will explore the fascinating Blanket Bog landscape of the West Coast of Ireland, a landscape that some would say is Ireland's last true wilderness. Exploring its formation and biodiversity this talk will be a glimpse into the many values of Ireland's Blanket Bogs.
