Award’s wrap up

Final REsults placingsFor the record, here are the placing of each island under the five different awards. Bere Island won the overall award for the most species recorded, and snatched the award for the most productive team. So major success all round. Inis Mór won two awards; for the most Marine Species and for the most Conservation Species recorded. Tory Island was by far the island with the most species recorded by area, so won the Species Richness Award by a country mile. Clare Island finished a close second on the Most Marine Species Award and Cape Clear was the only island to even remotely challenge the winners in the Species Richness Award. So well done to all five islands. It was an astonishing feat of recording over the few days and demonstrates the rich biodiversity of our offshore island. Thanks to everyone from the National Biodiversity Data Centre for making the event such as success.
