Mayo's Wild Things and Places

Mayo’s Wild Things and Places is a beautifully illustrated book describing a wide variety of habitats throughout the county, ranging from our vast expanses of peatlands to the unlikely habitats found in our towns and villages.

There is no other county in Ireland that can rival Mayo for its natural beauty and for the wealth and diversity of wildlife habitats found here. From the mountains to the lakes, the moorland, sandy beaches and coastal cliffs, the offshore islands, rivers and peatlands, turloughs, farmland, grasslands and limestone pavement, the wealth is truly remarkable.

The book highlights a selection of species that you will find in these places and gives a description, an illustration and information about each.
