Current Project

The Pollinator Project ‘Flutterbies and Busy Bees’

Worldwide, butterflies and bees are increasingly valued as bioindicators and for their ecosystem service provision. However, they are in increasing peril. It is also known that physical demonstration of, and active participation in, species conservation greatly increases the likelihood of social learning taking place, and thus a wider appreciation of nature. Thus, this project combines the twin objectives of conservation of bioindicator species and social and community development, by enabling individuals to participate in novel conservation design and creation events. This project aims to benefit wild butterflies and bees, particularly those often found in close proximity to humans and are thus heavily impacted upon by human activities such as land use change.

Throughougt 2013 Naturally Wild is helping schools and public areas such as Libraries, and Parks, Community Gardens etc. to establish pollinator gardens and wildflower meadows with plantings of food plants for caterpillars and nectar plants to flower for as much of the year as possible. This culminated in the Naturallywild ‘Flutterbies and Busy Bees’ children’s educational garden feature at the Rose Festival at St. Annes Park Raheeny on the weekend of the 20th and 21st of July.



As well as schools-based education and exhibitions, Naturally Wild provides a consultancy service including in-service teacher training, interpretation training for parks personnel, presentations for local authority and garden clubs, as well as advice for community and tidy towns groups.

Sample project
Naturally Wild can prepare maps, plans and drawings to help community groups to revamp open spaces. The drawing below was prepared for a group in Co. Dublin as part of a proposal to develop public parkland.


Naturally Wild can help with planting schemes, pathways, play areas and play equipment. Get in touch with us and we'll arrange to meet you and discuss your needs.
