Irish Wildlife Trust

The Irish Wildlife Trust works to create a better future for Ireland’s biodiversity by motivating and supporting people to take action to protect and restore biodiversity. We achieve this through wildlife walks and talks, citizen science projects, community education, practical conservation activities, and biodiversity campaigning and advocacy.

The IWT is a nationwide organisation with a strong membership base, staff, volunteers and Board of Directors, with branches throughout Ireland.

The Irish Wildlife Trust is governed our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is responsible for the good governance and the overall strategic direction of the IWT.  We have a small dedicated staff team who deliver the IWT activities and work programme. We have a network of volunteer run branches that engage members at a county level running event and practical conservation projects
