The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has today appealed to the public to keep their distance from vulnerable wildlife and to take great care when spending time with nature during the summer months.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service is also a partner of the Leave No Trace campaign and asks that the public familiarise themselves with the campaign’s guidance on good practices to avoid damaging vegetation, water bodies, soil and wildlife.

“We are delighted to welcome visitors to our national parks and nature reserves throughout the year. Many people don’t realise that areas such as sand dunes, lakes and woodlands are homes for wildlife that we’re working hard to protect and that wild animals and birds should not be upset in their natural habitat.,” said the Director General of the NPWS Niall Ó ’Donnchú.

“If you plan to visit areas of natural heritage this summer then please acquaint yourself with our advice available on good practice so you too can play your part in protecting nature. We’d also like to remind the public that anyone intending to film or photograph a protected wild animal must apply for a licence.”
