Trees & Hedgerows


An Taisce’s Legacy4LIFE Ponds for Biodiversity project aims to promote the establishment of a pond network across Ireland as a measure to help reverse biodiversity loss and mitigate climate change. The establishment of such a network would also have ecological and wider landscape benefits in the form of wildlife refuges for biodiversity as well as providing ecosystem services.
