Assessing the quality of Peatland Habitats - A Peatlands Habitat Score Card has been developed by the Wild Atlantic Nature LIFE Integrated Project of the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. Adapted for students, it may be a useful guide to habitat assessment as part of a field trip or larger project on Irish boglands. Download the score card (in pdf) here.
The nine-year Wild Atlantic Nature LIFE Integrated Project aims to improve Ireland’s conservation of important ecological areas with a focus on blanket bog, working with farmers and communities to improve habitat quality and the ecosystem services they provide including clean water, carbon storage and biodiversity.
