Exploring Mammals in Merlin Woods with Ruth Hanniffy ,Vincent Wildlife Trust. Using a variety of techniques Ruth brings us on a journey around Merlin Woods exploring the varying habitats needed by our local mammals. We learn about the trapping methods used to locate small mammals. We are given a chance to get up close to some of our smaller mammals and learn about what they need for survival. We learn how to find signs of some of our well-loved mammals such as the Red Squirrel. Ruth also gives us insight to some of the work ongoing in Galway and across the country to understand the plight of our mammal species and links are provided to access more info in the video description.
