New wetland sites identified in County Cavan

This project undertaken by Wetland Surveys Ireland has located 694 wetland sites in the county.аPrior to this research project only 78 wetland sites had been recognised from published sources within the county.а

The majority of the sites have little associated information on the wetland habitats that are likely to occur on the areas identified. A full county wetland survey, to build on the Cavan Wetland survey undertaken in 2008 is required toаaddress this information deficit.

The Wetland Map of Ireland now displays a total of 6,150 sites nationally.
