Notice Nature is Ireland’s biodiversity awareness campaign. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity and encourage everyone to play their part in its protection. Positive engagement with our natural heritage and the many resources available to the public, such as our National Parks, walking trails and Nature Reserves, can help halt the damage being done to our plants and animals, and the habitats in which they live.

What is biodiversity?

Put simply, biodiversity is the variety of life on Earth. It is essential for sustaining the natural living systems or ecosystems that provide us with food, clean water, fuel, health and the other amenities we take for granted in our everyday life.
