We have been successful in buying the first 28 acres of land. Huge heartfelt thanks go to all of our donors and supporters, we couldn’t have done it without you!! Now, the wilderness and incredibly rich biodiversity of this land will be preserved in perpetuity!
We are continuing to fundraise to buy more land in order to protect it for biodiversity and to expand the Nature Sanctuary. The next stage of our expansion plan, and our current goal, is to buy 84 more acres of land currently for sale in the Lough Grainey valley.
This land is unique and precious, it is rich in biodiversity including rare birds, plants and animals that are in decline,and some old oak trees, remnants of an ancient oak forest. Part of the land borders a river, and is a unique habitat with an abundance of wildflowers and wildlife.
