Birds and their habitats are afforded some protection under national legislation, European legislation and under international agreements and conventions. Nature conservation law is central to Irish environmental law by affording some protection to our natural heritage as well as it cutting across planning control, pollution licensing, and issues of civil and criminal liability.


A healthy marine environment is crucial for all life on earth. That is why we work tirelessly to highlight the issues that are threatening our oceans and their wildlife. Click here to find out more.
