The Wild Postcard Project

Creating a series of postcards depicting Ireland's biodiversity

The wild things are here. Welcome.


We are very excited to announce the launch of the Wild Postcard Project, an initiative that aims to share the awesomeness of Ireland’s biodiversity on postcards

We will be producing a series of 10 postcards that will debut on International Biodiversity Day in May 2016 and be sold in shops around the country. We are hopeful that these postcards – sent both within Ireland and posted to destinations across the world – will raise awareness of the fantastic creatures and plants we’ve got here in Ireland.


The really exciting bit is that these postcards will be designed by Ireland’s youth. How? We are holding an artwork competition!

We are inviting all children aged 5-18 to submit to us their artwork depicting Ireland’s biodiversity. Through a juried process, ten entries will be selected that we will turn into postcards, to be sold in shops across Ireland.


Use the links at the top of the page for details on the competition, and lots lots more!


We are delighted to introduce our “pack” – organisations who are supportive of the Wild Postcard Project. Please find out more about them using the ‘about us’ link above.
