Young Autistic Naturalist

Northern Ireland

My name is Dara and I'm a young Autistic Naturalist. I'm passionate about wildlife, nature, conservation and positivity surrounding autism advocacy. I have published articles for New Nature, The Wildlife Trusts, Wader Quest, Wildlife Watch and The Curlew. I was awarded the Springwatch Unsprung Wildlife Hero award in June 2017 and have appeared on BBC Northern Ireland's 'Homeground'. I have also recorded two BBC Radio 4 'Tweet of the Day' programmes. All my writing, appearances and recordings focus on the plight of nature and conservation and I always strive to make people more aware of many issues and more importantly- how they can help. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss anything further! Enjoy your visit and then go out and experience nature for yourself!
