The IWT is highlighting the need for a comprehensive wetland policy and strategy for Ireland that reﬂects their value, functions, ecosystem services and which can improve decision-making processes in relation to proposals which could alter our wetland ecosystems. We have produced exhibitions and in 2010 we published ‘Our Wetlands Heritage’ – an information booklet explores our wetland’s wildlife from dragonflies, butterflies, frogs, and newts to wetland birds right up to our largest carnivore: the otter. The booklet also explores the value of wetlands and the ecosystem services they provide and examines the associated threats to them and what we can do to ensure wetland protection for the future.
You can order a copy today by placing an order. You can phone in using your credit card to 01-8602839 or send a cheque or postal order for €5.00 (€3 for the booklet and €2 for P+P) to Irish Wildlife Trust, Sigmund Business Centre, 93A Lagan Road, Dublin Industrial Estate, Glasnevin, Dublin 11.
