This campaign addresses two distinct issues.
1. The dilemma of NO FREE PASSAGE for migratory fish and eel on the river Lee.
2. The lack of a cohesive, professional, ecologically sound management plan for the very last remnant of ancient wetland forest in Western Europe , The Gearagh.

Just sixty years ago the wild Atlantic salmon swam in abundance in our Irish rivers. Magnificent in size and a truly majestic creature, it was known as the king of fish. Today this national and natural treasure is in serious decline. This has to be seen as a clear indication of the overall poor condition of our environment. Unfortunately we, as a modern society, refuse to take note of the warning signs. Lets hope action is taken before it is too late.
