Local pupil John Moan from The Abbey Scoil na Mainistreach, Newry will feature in one of the 12 episodes. ‘Na Dulradóirí’ by Paper Owl Films, will be shown on TG4 and will see local school children across Ireland get to grips with some of our prime environmental locations supplying scientists from around the world with research on our unique wildlife. The 12 part series will examine our impact on some of our various species including red squirrels, seals, red deer and badgers, to name a few. The creative team at Paper Owl produced the programme with the aim to not only educate young people and their families about the detrimental impact our actions can have at both a local and global level but to empower young people to make a difference – by observing, recording and making local spaces safer for our unique wildlife. Grainne McGuinness, Managing Director of Paper Owl Films said, “We’ve been working on this project now for over a year and we’re so excited to see it finally come to life this week on our screens. We’re thrilled to see this go on air on on the Cúla4 young people’s zone on TG4 this Autumn. “Paper Owl is genuinely passionate about protecting our natural environment and we want to get the message across at a young age that what you do even in your own backyard can have global repercussions. I believe Ireland boasts some of the most beautiful natural environments and we hope Na Dulradóirí showcases that,” she added.
