Christmas Appeal 2016 – Help Build a Bog Restoration Fund

drain blocking copyIPCC’s Christmas appeal is to build a fund to help restore 50 hectares of bogland across four of our nature reserves. We are seeking €9,000 to help carry out a variety of jobs on the sites. Staff and volunteers will be involved in monitoring the behaviour and breeding success of Curlew, doing weekly butterfly transects, blocking drains, improving habitat quality for endangered marsh fritillary and organising open days for supporters and communities. Your support inspires IPCC. Please donate by following this link. Thank You so much.
