Ireland's Only Landscape Conservation Charity
Partnering with the Burrenbeo Trust, Ireland’s only landscape conservation charity, travellers on Wilderness trips help to support the conservation of the Burren’s unique geological, environmental and cultural landscape.
The Burrenbeo Trust was founded in 2008 with the aim of generating increased awareness and appreciation for the Burren’s stunning landscapes. This membership-based charitable trust has 25 programmes to encourage community-led conservation, manned by over 100 regular volunteers. Over 5,000 more people regularly subscribe to the trust.
From education to research, advocacy, and conservation, the Burrenbeo’s goal is to develop a sustainable future for the Burren. The members work with the farmers to facilitate and grow their connection and symbiotic relationship with the landscape. Burrenbeo engages and informs local communities and international visitors about the importance of conserving the Burren. Burrenbeo also acts as a model to promote sustainable practices in the Burren and beyond.
Though initially developed for the Burren, their continuing success allowed the team to realise that the same methods could be used in other agricultural regions of Ireland with a few tweaks.
