Nature & Wildlife
I am deeply committed to creating a lasting, positive legacy for natural heritage in Ireland. In Budget 2021, I increased our National Parks and Wildlife Service's funding by 80%. This was an important first step, but there is much more to do to address the biodiversity emergency. Here, I set out my top priorities for nature and wildlife under the Programme for Government, along with additional initiatives I'm progressing under this portfolio. Follow me on social media for updates or contact me directly for details on the progress I'm making.
