The EU LIFE funded Atlantic Crex project (Improving Corncrake conservation status in Ireland by the enhancement of the SPA network and surrounding farmland) is coordinated by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and includes partners from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Údarás na Gaeltachta, Fota Wildlife Park and the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology.
The overall objective of the LIFE Atlantic Crex project is to improve the conservation status in Ireland of the Corncrake by the enhancement of the SPA network and surrounding farmland.
