On Thursday, 28th February, Dr Allan Mee of the Golden Eagle Trust gave a fantastic talk on the many reintroduction projects he has been involved with around the world, detailing the pitfalls and solutions encountered - a welcome change for him from just speaking on the White-tailed Eagle project here in Kerry. A lot of these species have become flagship species, providing not only a conservation focus, but also beneficial knock-on economic effects.
