Protection of Wildlife

Ringed Plover

The island of Ireland is home to an abundance of species, both migratory and permanent. Habitats range from our highest mountains to the depths of our offshore environment on the western edge of Europe. The conservation of species in Ireland concentrates mainly on those protected under international or national legislation. It is the role of the National Parks and Wildlife Service of the Department to work with its partners in the public service and wider community to provide the best possible scientific advice and ensure effective protection is provided to secure the conservation of wildlife in Ireland.
