Welcome to the Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC). Fáilte. Our mission is to protect a representative sample of the peatlands of Ireland for future generations to enjoy. We hope our web site will help you to get to know us better. It’s your gateway to the save the bogs campaign and to visitors to the Bog of Allen Nature Centre. Please help us to keep in touch with one another. The IPCC is a registered charity (number CHY6829) and a non-governmental organisation.
Earlier this summer IPCC’s received a welcome boost for our work to save the Curlew on Lodge Bog with funding support from Seacology – an international organisation that is committed to prove ting island habitats and assisting local communities in their efforts to achieve this. With 71% of the remaining breeding Curlew using peatlands in Ireland, IPCC believe that habitat restoration and public awareness are essential to ensure Curlew survive.
