The County Leitrim Biodiversity Action Plan 2022-2027 was published recently to raise awareness of biodiversity amongst individuals and communities by providing support, guidance and encouragement to engage with biodiversity through education and practical conservation participation.
The process of developing this Plan, which sets out a strategic roadmap for the protection of the natural environment, was funded under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 (extended to 2022), with match funding provided by Leitrim Development Company and Leitrim County Council. It is hoped that the Plan will not only form a cornerstone for future LEADER funded biodiversity related projects in the county but will be adopted as a cross-sectoral policy to ensure that biodiversity is given consideration in all projects.
