Blanket Bog Campaign

Irish Atlantic Blanket Bog Habitat

Have your say on the future of Ireland’s blanket bogs. IPCC are running an advocacy campaign on blanket bogs which are of global significance in our country. The campaign, supported by the Irish Environmental Network, is seeking your opinion and information on blanket bog sites which will feed into our future policy work for this habitat. Read more about the campaign here and join the survey here. Learn more about blanket bogs here.
