The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) recently unveiled a new Curlew structure in Drumshanbo to celebrate the iconic Irish bird which remains under threat.
The structure is aimed at raising awareness for the curlew.
The Curlew Conservation Programme, a joint initiative between NPWS and the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine, commissioned Donegal artist Brendan Farren, to create these structures from willow. T
He structure celebrates the importance of the locality for Curlew and to bring the species to mind for visitors and local people alike.
The Curlew Conservation Programme engages with local communities, clubs, farmers and landowners. Over the past four breeding seasons, direct assistance and support from the community has allowed the programme to progress in these local areas allowing the Curlew Action Team and relevant parties to work as a collective with one common goal.
