Agri-Ecology Projects

The National Parks & Wildlife Service undertakes scientific research to determine which habitats and species are in greatest need of conservation intervention, where these habitats and species are located, and what can be done for them. The Agri-Ecology Unit of NPWS plays a pivotal role in such research, while also taking research forward into field trials, applied conservation effort and national policy.
