In this short video, Elaine McGoff, An Taisce's Natural Environment Officer and mum of two young girls, explores parenting with hope in this time of climate and biodiversity crises.

Pat McKenna, who runs an eco-grazing scheme on the An Taisce lands at Sliabh Beagh, has been nominated for a Farming for Nature award. Pat has been working closely with the Collaborative Action for the Natura Network (CANN) project, funded through Interreg, to ensure that activities are in line with habitat information and conservation actions through this initiative.
