Launch of LIFE IP Wild Atlantic Nature Newsletter

Date: 10 Dec 2021

Life IP Wild Atlantic Nature has welcomed the first issue of its newsletter

Wild Atlantic Nature LIFE Integrated Project (IP) is a nine-year environmental project (2021-2029) led by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. It strives to improve Ireland's performance in conserving habitats, and, especially, to improve the conservation status in the Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) Network of blanket bog, a priority habitat under the Habitats Directive. The primary focus is on 24 Natura 2000 sites in the northwest of Ireland.  The project works with farmers and local communities to protect and enhance the quality of blanket bogs and associated habitats, and the ecosystem services they provide including clean water, carbon storage and biodiversity.
