Initiative Underway in Wicklow to Curb Decline of Swifts

The garden county is playing its part in protecting the swift population in Ireland which is under serious threat due to the loss of nesting sites and suitable feeding habits. 

The Wicklow Swift project, managed by the Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council with funding support from the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Heritage Council, sets out to help protect this species and stop the decline.  

Co Ordinator, Oran O’Sullivan said they’re working hard to raise awareness for locals in the county.
