BIODIVERSITY & REWILDING
For several years, Flynn Furney Environmental Consultants have been delighted to work on projects that will lead to enhancement of biodiversity at local or greater levels. These include projects that are specifically dedicated to the creation or expansion of valuable habitat types. In 2020 we assisted Monaghan County Council in the creation of a Biodiversity Park in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. In 2019 we worked with Cooney Architects on the design of a biodiversity-friendly park in Robertstown, Co. Kildare. In 2021 we wrote the Biodiversity and Development Plan for Monaghan – a Biodiversity Town. We are very happy to be developing the new Biodiversity Plan for County Cavan.
Rewilding, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), is the process of rebuilding, following major human disturbance, a natural ecosystem by restoring natural processes and the complete or near-complete food-web at all trophic levels as a self-sustaining and resilient ecosystem. At FFEC we fully support the concept and ideals of rewilding as set out by the IUCN. We are very proud to be part of Ireland’s first science-led non-governmental rewilding project at Castle Leslie, Glaslough, Co. Monaghan. At this beautiful, historical estate, Flynn Furney’s ecologists are working at the ‘ground floor’ of this ambitious rewilding project and establishing baseline data on plant, bird, mammal and invertebrate communities.
