Clare Island (New Survey of Clare Island)

Clare Island (New Survey of Clare Island)
"Few places on Earth, and none elsewhere in Ireland, have yielded such a concentrated inventory of knowledge about the natural world." Michael Viney

One hundred years ago, Irish naturalist Robert Lloyd Praeger led a survey of the natural history and cultural heritage of Clare Island at a level of detail greater than any area of comparable size at that time. Almost a century later, the Royal Irish Academy set about repeating the exercise with the intention of assessing and evaluating change on the island over the intervening years.
