€28,500 for IPCC Bog Network

IPCC’s received grants to the value of €28,500 from the Heritage Council in 2017 to carry out four conservation and education projects on our network of peatland reserves in Kerry, Kildare and Meath. All of the projects aim to protect threatened peatland habitats and the iconic species that find refuge in them including Large Heath Butterfly and Curlew. We invite you to read about the programme of activities taking place on each site and thank all of those who donated to our Peatland Management Fund which provided matching funding to the Heritage Council grants. 

IPCC have completed a first draft of the Conservation Management Plan for Coad Bog, Co. Kerry. If you would like to comment on the plan please feel free to contact Katie at bogs@ipcc.ie before the 30th of September, your feedback is important to us.
