About Cork Nature Network

“Cork Nature Network’s mission is to protect and promote Ireland’s wildlife through education, conservation and research to restore a healthy ecosystem for all species and habitats in Ireland”

 The most critical challenges facing wildlife in Ireland today are:

  • Habitat Loss
  • Climate Change
  • Pollution
  • Decline in Species Numbers

The future of Ireland’s wildlife will depend on the collective action of informed communities working together to protect our natural world.

As a charity, we work to bring about positive change to Irish habitats and wildlife species in Ireland through our research, awareness and education programmes.

We encourage and foster information sharing on how we can take positive action to help protect species and keep our environment healthy and sustainable for present and future generations.
