Explore the formation of peatlands in Ireland with the Irish Peatland Conservation Council and gain an understanding into their importance in terms of climate change, biodiversity and the challenges they face.
Learn how IPCC are working to protect and conserve a representative portion of peatlands in Ireland for future generations to enjoy and what you can do to help conserve peatlands.
