Birdwatch Ireland and the Heritage Bill

“The proposed changes are the most significant roll back of the legal protections for our wildlife ever in the State. The government is reducing the protections for our birds and nature at a time when we should be ensuring greater protection for vulnerable wildlife, particularly as Ireland prides itself as a ‘green’ island with wild tourism and green agriculture. The evidence shows that many bird and pollinator populations are already under threat in Ireland. And there will be no positive outcome for wildlife in the changes in the Heritage Bill, but rather the dilution of the protections currently afforded them with proposed regulation intended to minimise the damage.”
