All-Ireland Pollinator Plan 2015-2020 Partners


At the time of its original publication, 68 governmental and non-governmental organisations from the North and South agreed to support the All-Ireland Pollinator Plan. Responsibility for delivering the 81 actions laid out by the Plan have been shared out between these original partners. More organisations are coming on board all the time.
