The Emerald Isle offers a unique opportunity for wild land restoration. Even with the lowest figure in Europe for original native habitat, Ireland's landscape continues to dwindle. Having turned our backs on wildlife and pressed on with aggressive land-based practices, we have come to the point that we find ourselves in this country. Once thriving grasslands have been reduced to fields of a dozen species or fewer; vibrant forests reduced to bogs and bare rock; plants, insects and birds that once enjoyed viable status have been reduced to endangered or threatened proportions.
Some of us hold the knowledge and enthusiasm needed to bring back the vibrancy of this magic land and return it to a resilient state, replete with native flora and fauna.
