The MacGillycuddy Reeks are Irelands highest mountain range with the tallest peak Carrountooohil reaching 1,038.6metres high.
The area is privately owned and farmed by several families, however access for hillwalkers is granted and the mountain sees over 125,000 visitors each year.
The MacGillycuddy Reeks are also a designated Special area of conservation. This offers protection to some the protected species and habitats that can be found there.
But balancing conservation, farming and recreation is no easy task!
In this webinar we will be joined by Noel Doyle from Leave No Trace Ireland, Patricia Deane from the MacGillycuddy Reeks Forum & European Innovation Partnership Project-EIP and we'll also hear from some of the farmers that spend their lives on the mountains.

This webinar is part of a year long series hosted in collaboration with Kerry Biosphere reserve and Unesco Biosphere Isle of Man to celebrate the 50th year anniversary of UNESCO's Man and Biosphere Programme
