Corncrake Conservation

Protecting Corncrakes and their habitats

The landscape is changing faster than ever. Increasing pressures on land resources are posing serious threats to the existence of our wildlife. Here you can find out about our work on a number of cooperative conservation projects to protect vulnerable species across Ireland.

The CABB project

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


The Curlew EIP

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


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.
