Dublin Bay Biosphere
Despite lockdown, Dublin City Council is preparing to test its vision for a world-class Discovery Centre at the UNESCO recognised Dublin Bay Biosphere. The project, which is expected to cost around €15 million, will focus on education, research and events that demonstrate the significance of the Biosphere in this part of Ireland.
It’s an ambitious plan which, as the country recovers, will be key to improving people’s physical and mental well-being through the provision of outdoor space, whilst making an important contribution to the development of a resilient local economy. “We’re really excited about the Council’s vision for this unique environment; home to seals, oystercatchers and a myriad of mudflat animals and plants,” says Amy Stevens. “The feasibility study is not about asking for gifts, but about seeking opinions at a really critical time.”
