 In 2011 Coillte commenced its 2nd Restoration Project on Raised Bogs. The project (LIFE09 NAT/IE/000222) is being managed by Coillte and focuses on the restoration of 636 hectares of raised bog habitat on 17 Coillte owned sites within the Natura 2000 network and in Natural Heritage Areas. This nature conservation project is jointed funded by the EU (DG-Environment), NPWS (part of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht) and Coillte under the LIFE-Nature Programme.
During the lifetime of the project a significant improvement in the quality of raised bog habitat is expected. The aim is to create the conditions which will allow raised bog habitat regeneration in future years. Further Information
