Peatlands Gathering 2021

The Peatlands Gathering 2021 took place from 7-9 October to share knowledge and understandings of peatlands in Ireland. LIFE IP Wild Atlantic Nature manager Derek McLoughlin gave a presentation focusing on the management of farmland and its influence on the quality of peatland habitat. As part of the event, Wild Atlantic Nature and Pearl Mussel Project held a fieldtrip at Connemara National Park where participants had the opportunity to see how results-based programmes work and discuss how this approach can deliver better outcomes for the environment and society.
