Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

Objective

Inch Wildfowl Reserve Project
The Inch Wildfowl Reserve project aims to deliver a world-class visitor and outdoor recreation attractions at Inch Wildfowl Reserve at Inch Levels in County Donegal. The project is funded by the European Union through the INTERREG IVA Programme.

About this project

Inch Wildfowl Reserve Project

BirdWatch Ireland and the National Parks and Wildlife Service of the Department of Arts Heritage and Gaeltacht (NPWS) monitor the bird populations of this protected area, through the Irish Wetland Bird Survey (I-WeBS) and other counts. I-WeBS is a long term programme of monthly bird counts at wetland sites all over Ireland, co-ordinated with the parallel WeBS scheme throughout the UK.

Inch Lough and Levels are counted as one of 13 sub-sites of Lough Swilly south of a line from north of Rathmullan to Buncrana. Donegal County Council is constructing tourist infrastructure, funded by INTERREG, in a cross-border programme which is doing similar work on the eastern shore of Lough Foyle in Northern Ireland. Other stakeholders include four local gun clubs, individuals with an interest in the local history and archaeology of the area, and a growing number of people who use the improved perimeter walkway (with associated car parks) for healthy exercise in a beautiful and interesting environment.
