Biodiversity Loan Case

To accompany the Biodiversity pack, we have developed a Biodiversity Loan Case containing equipment and materials to carry out biodiversity related activities within the classroom, on the school grounds and within the Causeway Coast AONB.  Our Biodiversity loan case can be borrowed for a period of 2 weeks. We provide this service free of charge.

The Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust was established in 2002 and is a charity devoted to protecting and enhancing the unique heritage of the Causeway Coast and Glens area, including (but not limited to) the Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Binevenagh AONB), Causeway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Causeway Coast AONB), Antrim Coast and Glens Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Antrim Coast & Glens AONB) and the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast World Heritage Site (Giant’s Causeway WHS).

The Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust is grateful for support from Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) and Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council for this project.
