Nestlé’s Wyeth Nutrition Infant Formula Site in Askeaton, Co. Limerick recently supported a local primary school, when it presented pupils with bird feeders and bird boxes. Eagle eyed students will be able to spot various species of indigenous birds from the location of these feeders outside the classroom window. Fitting in with the 2018 Year of the Bird campaign, the installations will support the environment by encouraging birds into the school gardens and educate the pupils on the importance of looking after local wildlife.
This educational partnership is part of the factory’s sustainability programme, which also brought a 1,800 square metre butterfly meadow and insect lodge to the area to enhance local biodiversity.
