Welcome to another episode of Ours To Protect.

Last week we heard about the Local Authority Waters Programme or LAWPRO and the work they’re doing to identify the issues affecting water quality in every county in Ireland.

Community engagement is the cornerstone of this approach to combine local and expert knowledge for a better understanding of what’s happening in a local catchment and waterbody.

Today, we’ll find out what local communities can do to protect their wetland areas.

Pat Flynn has been speaking with Ruairí Ó’ Conchúir is Community Water Officer for LAWPRO in Clare.
