Participate in a Biodiversity Challenge!!!

Now that the warm weather has arrived this is an opportune time for St Pius boys to get involved in a Biodiversity project. The National Biodiversity Data Centre need our help in determining the number of garden flower pollinators i.e. insects are visiting us. There is a concern that numbers are dwindling and we can help by counting our insect visitors and submitting the data that is collected. All of the links below including an instructional video on how to get started are easily accessed. Please click on the relevant links below for an interesting, worthwhile and fun activity.
