The Green Step
2.9 Results Based Agriculture / Charismatic Fauna
This we we're joined by Mary McAndrew of the Pearle Mussle Project and Padraic Fogarty of the Irish Wildlife Trust 🦌
💧Why is it so important that our waterways are kept clean, clear and vital for life to flourish?
🌾How is the Results Based Agricultural Payment approach supporting healthier Irish Ecosystems?
💚We touch on the heart of the ethical dilemma of species extinction and share stories of hope for the future.
Mary works with a results based approach as a catchment officer in the Pearle Mussle Project. She works directly with farmers and land owners. All of her work is informed by her own background in AgScience and farm life. We hear her stories of success and transformation as she helps us get to grips with the results based framework 🐑
Padraic is the campaign manager for the Irish Wildlife Trust and the author of 'Whittled Away.' With an intimate understanding of how Ireland's ecosystems have degraded in recent times, Padraic offers us a historical view of conservation and shares some of his ethical qualms with us to mull over. 🐺
