“Restoring large landscapes and complex ecosystems while remaining connected to the communities living, visiting, and working there is the challenge of our lifetimes. The Wild Atlantic Rainforest Project will address this challenge by protecting fragments of Ireland’s ancient oceanic woodlands and creating new woodlands where they once existed. We envision these wild spaces woven through a patchwork landscape of blanket bogs, species-rich grasslands, and vibrant human communities.
Irish biodiversity is threatened and in need of urgent attention. This is a unique opportunity to create healthy ecosystems, build climate resilience and repair our connection with nature. We have a short delivery timeframe, which reflects the urgency of this project. We hope its positive impact, enjoyed for generations to come, will be its legacy.”
