Wetlands Survey 2021
The Heritage Office has commissioned a programme of wetland surveys in County Kilkenny. Wetlands are one of the most biodiverse habitats we have and are essential to buffer against the impacts of climate change. They can range in size from springs and ponds, to rivers, lakes and bogs. The survey will commence in July, and builds on the wetland audit undertaken in 2020, and the data gathered will inform future polices. The project is co-funded by Kilkenny County Council and the Heritage Council under the County Heritage Plan funding 2021.
