Corncrake Conservation

Protecting Corncrakes and their habitats

The landscape is changing faster than at any time in history. The speed of change and a move towards ever increasing intensification of land management is posing serious threats to the existence of our wildlife. We are working hard on practical conservation measures to help the most vulnerable of species.

CABB project

Cooperation Across Borders for Biodiversity (CABB) project is a cross-border INTERREG VA project to protect breeding waders and manage bog habitats in border counties of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Curlew EIP

European Innovation Partnerships  (EIP) are funded by the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Marine (DAFM), supporting cooperative action at a local level.  BirdWatch Ireland is working with partners to protect breeding Curlew in Galway and Leitrim.

Corncrakes

Corncrakes were one of Ireland’s best-loved and most familiar birds of rural areas.  Efforts to save them have prevented extinction, but they are now confined to part of Donegal and West Connaught.
