Advocacy

Our Advocacy Unit is dedicated to promoting the conservation of Ireland's nature and biodiversity as well as its built heritage.

We see compliance with international, EU and Irish law as being fundamental to this objective. We act as a prescribed consultee for a number of different consent processes in Ireland (e.g. planning, afforestation, aquaculture licensing).

Our Advocacy Unit is made up of technical staff, interns, volunteers and our many local association members across the country who work on issues and projects affecting the environment. The Advocacy Unit works closely with An Taisce's Education Unit, drawing on a large and diverse body of knowledge and expertise.

Technical staff are based in Tailors' Hall in Dublin and work on a wide range of issues.
