Wild Atlantic Nature partner on €23.5m WaterLANDS project

LIFE IP Wild Atlantic Nature is part of a new 5-year (2021-2026) EU Horizon 2020 funded project to restore and protect wetland sites across Europe. WaterLANDS will undertake hands-on restoration of specific wetland sites, including a Wild Atlantic Nature site at Cuilcagh-Anierin Uplands SAC, and create best practice models that can be applied elsewhere. The project will work with farmers and local communities to ensure that wetland restoration results not only in environmental gains, but also social and economic benefits for the communities involved.
