Golden Eagle Trust
Reintroduction programme incubates funding worth €36,500. Thanks to support from the Heritage Council and ourselves, the Golden Eagle Trust has really been able to use funding worth €36,500 to spread its wings and do fantastic conservation and restoration work for many of Ireland’s declining and even extinct native birds. One high-profile example is the Reintroduction Programme for Golden Eagles in Glenveigh.
It’s a breathtaking sight to see these magnificent creatures wheeling high above Donegal’s mountains. The Trust’s work includes the reintroduction of white-tailed eagles to Killarney National Park and red kites to the east coast as well. They’ve been gone for more than 200 years, so it may take a little adjustment as they get used to the changes!
