Eleven MSc in Sustainable Resource Management Policy and Practice students at NUI Galway recently carried out surveys of the biodiversity found along the Sandybanks lane for Headford Environmental Group and the local community. As part of the project the students carried out habitat mapping, and recorded plants and animals along stretches of the lane.

The taught MSc in Sustainable Resource Management Policy and Practice is a multidisciplinary course jointly run by NUI Galway and UL.

As part of the project the students gave an informative talk and created a leaflet for people from Headford town to find out more about the lane’s biodiversity as they walk along the lane.
