Anthony Hallam, A PhD research student will deliver a talk on the unique status of the Irish hare and on the issue of the introduced European hares in Ireland.

South Derry is one of the areas where both species overlap. Hybribisation may occur throughout Mid-Ulster and Anthony is surveying this area. He will tell us how to identify the two species and how to assist in his research if you come across hares.
