All-Ireland Pollinator Plan
One third of our wild bee species are threatened with extinction from Ireland. We know this is because we have drastically reduced the areas where they can nest and the amount of food our landscape provides for them. We can stand back and watch this happen, or we can try to do something. The All-Ireland Pollinator Plan is about all of us, from farmers to local authorities, to schools, gardeners and businesses, coming together to try to create an island where pollinators can survive and thrive.
The Pollinator Plan provides an important framework to bring together pollinator initiatives from the North and South, and is the start of a process by which we can collectively take positive steps to protect our pollinators and the service they provide into the future. It is a shared plan of action. By working together we can help restore populations to healthy levels.
The first phase of the AIPP ran from 2015-2020. To see the original Plan, all review documents, and a celebratory booklet to mark what was achieved across the first five years visit: https://pollinators.ie/working-together-for-biodiversity
A new version of the AIPP for 2021-2025 launched on the 26th March 2021.
