BurrenLIFE to continue…phew!
The National Parks and Wildlife service have issued a Request for Tender for a project team to deliver a new 3-year programme of Farming for Conservation in the Burren. The new Dept of Agriculture funded programme, the first landscape-based agri-environmental programme in Ireland, is based on the findings of the successful 5-year BurrenLIFE project www.burrenlife.com and is to be launched in the next month or two. The new programme, which supports farmers to actively manage the Burren’s important habitats, will be a huge boost for the local economy, for farming and for heritage in the Burren. Great news for the farmers and project staff invovled!
