Protecting Habitats and Species
Protecting our animals, plants and habitats.
This project focuses on the habitat restoration of RSPB managed islands on Lower Lough Erne aiming to secure a stable and growing population of four key breeding wader species, curlew, lapwing, snipe and redshank.
In recent times the population of pollinators has decreased due to varying factors. The aim of the project is to research and monitor the population of honey bees and wild bees in the area and develop a strategy to enhance their habitat locally.
This project aims to enhance awareness amongst landowners and the local community about the positive roles the Lough Erne Wildfowlers Council can play in conserving wading species and their habitats.
