Teen talent: the nature writer Dara McAnulty from Castlewellan

Like many events, the NI Science Festival has gone online for 2021, running from February 15-18 and offering over 120 events including discussions and interactive workshops. In its seventh year - and at a time where science has never been more in focus - one of the upcoming events is a Q&A with teenage naturalist Dara McAnulty.

The 16-year-old, the youngest recipient of the 2020 Wainwright Prize for UK nature writing for his Diary of a Young Naturalist, lives in Castlewellan with his family and will be talking about our connection to nature, something which we can all explore.

"And how incredible the natural world is and the wonder that inspires in us," he says.
