New Threat Response Plans

New Threat Response Plans are being prepared by NPWS as part of Ireland's response to the judgement of the European Court of Justice in case C-183/05, and the requirement to establish a system of strict protection for species listed in Annex IV of the Habitats Directive.

These three year plans provide detailed information on range, distribution and habitat. They also focus on the particular threats facing each species and identify the measures required to address these threats, as well as identifying who is responsible for implementing them and providing a time frame for delivery.
