The Living Bog:
Natura 2000 Finalists
The Living Bog, which commenced in 2016 and finishes this December 2020, is among 27 finalists for the European Commission’s Natura 2000 Awards. The awards recognise excellence in the management of Natura 2000 sites. The Living Bog is nominated in the ‘Community’ category, with the bog project’s work in the local community and its involvement of community groups and individuals – including turf cutters – in project actions recognised by the European Union’s environmental bodies. Galway’s Living Bog is one of the 12 SAC bogs under the Living Bog project.
