Rte1 Living the Wildlife programme to feature the Grey Partridge project in Boora on Tuesday 29th March at 7pm.

Don’t miss out on what promises to be an excellent insight into the Grey Partridge conservation project  in Boora here is what Colin Stafford -Johnston had to say about his time spent on the project

“The aim of our new series has been to find positive stories and show all the good inspiring things that are happening around us and to meet some of the wild and wonderful characters who dedicate their lives to the natural world. A great time was had by all with the Grey Partridge Conservation Project in Offaly. Kieran Buckley and Paddy Kelly have managed to rescue the Grey Partridge from extinction. From under 20 pairs left breeding in the wild in 2002 this year they had over 90 pairs and over nine hundred chicks. It’s without doubt one of the most effective and successful conservation project of it’s kind that I have come across anywhere in the world.”
– Colin Stafford-Johnson, Presenter

The program will air on Rte1 on Tuesday 29th March 7pm.
