Deadline Extended: 26th March 2021
A review is underway of the National Parks and Wildlife Service – online survey open to public
Everyone is being encouraged to have their say on the future of the NPWS. An online survey is open until 26th March 2021.
If it is helpful, here are some key issues which the IWT have put forward to consider:
1. Resourcing: NPWS staff are good at what they do but need resources to produce results.
2. Ambition: A nature conservancy agency which can produce science, enforce wildlife law, provide advice to communities, businesses and state agencies and deliver education on our biodiversity across all levels of society.
3. Independence and accountability: The NPWS will fail if these key factors are missing.
Go to https://npws.ie/news/review-npws-stakeholder-survey to contribute. It is important that as many people as possible have their say.
Deadline is Friday 26th March 2021.
As you know, Make Way Day is a National Public Awareness Campaign to highlight the problems people with disabilities face in getting around their local communities.
“Hey, this blocks my way!” is the message.
Make Way Day is based on several barriers that causes problems for people with disabilities.
Take this quick survey to let Make Way Day know what stops you from getting down the street in 2021. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Makewayday
