BurrenLIFE 

The BurrenLIFE Programme has been tremendously successful in pioneering alternative approaches to sustainable management of high nature value farmland in the Burren region. It focuses not only on positive landscape management but also on cultural heritage and has also led to a changing mindset in how we can value, protect and manage our landscapes using partnership-led bottom-up approaches.
