Since 1999

The Wildlife of Waterford City & County

We’ve Gone Social

One of the aims of this site is inform, educate and entertain as many people as possible and so, with this in mind, we have have launched a brand new Facebook page for Waterford Wildlife. Everything here will continue as normal but Facebook will serve as a compliment to this site.

We will continue with the regular postings here but those stories will be additionally posted to Facebook. Hopefully this will help more people find our content and it will also give you, our valued readers, the chance to share and like our content with your family and friends.

We also have brand new sharing buttons on each of our posts that will help you share our posts onto your own Facebook timeline or your Twitter Feed. Please feel free to share any of our posts that you like and, as always, please leave comments if have something to say.
