Amphibian watchman – “When we save the frogs, we’re protecting all our wildlife, all our ecosystems and all humans.” — Dr. Kerry Kriger

The rich biodiversity in Ireland is a result of its varied landscapes, including rugged mountains, rolling hills, fertile valleys, and extensive coastline. The country boasts a remarkable array of plant and animal species, many of which are native and unique to Ireland. Ancient forests, boglands, fertile river valleys, mountainscapes and coastal habitats support a wide range of flora and fauna, which are essential to the healthy fisheries anglers enjoy.
