Curlew EIP Project Overview
This EIP-AGRI project aims to develop and trial new and innovative approaches at known Curlew breeding sites in Lough Corrib in Co. Galway, and the south Leitrim bogs to stem the decline of the Irish breeding Curlew population. Working closely with the farming community, the project is improving breeding outcomes on both farmland and bogs, by implementing mechanisms for the management of predation risk and improvement in nest outcomes, capital works to improve habitats; and a results-based measure for breeding Curlew.
