Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

New HEAR and DARE 2015 Video

A new DARE and HEAR 2015 information video is now available.

The new 2015 video gives an overview of DARE and HEAR and features a HEAR undergraduate and a DARE alumni speaking about their experience of college. It also features Maynooth University’s President, Prof Philip Nolan.

The video aims to raise awareness of the schemes and why they are important, so it’s suitable for a very broad range of stakeholders from secondary school students, teachers, guidance counsellors, parents, access practitioners, academic staff, etc.
