Bats on Campus - Monday 4th 6pm

First up - Bats on Campus with Dr. Caitriona Carlin! This event will take place on Monday from 6pm, starting from the Space. Weather permitting, Caitriona will lead a bat walk around campus while teaching us about Ireland''s bats! If it rains, this walk will be substituted for a talk in the Space.

Critter Cafe and Bake Sale - Tuesday 5th 1-4pm

Fan favourite Critter Cafe is of course being held for Wildlife Week - join us in the Cube from 1-4pm to meet Lenny and friends, and maybe buy some sweet treats from our bake sale!

Table Quiz - Wednesday 6th 7pm

Test your animal (and other) knowledge with our Table Quiz at the Palás Cinema Bar on Wednesday from 7pm! There will also be a raffle, and there's loads of great prizes up for grabs! This event is ticketed, and you can buy a ticket now by clicking here, or you can get a ticket on the night (space dependent, so I'd recommend getting your ticket online ahead of time!).


Irish Wildlife Sounds Talk - Thursday 7th 2-3:30pm

Join us in the Meeting Rooms on Thursday from 2-3:30pm for a talk by ornithologist Seán Ronayne from Irish Wildlife Sounds, where he will talk about his project!
