Following an extensive round of consultation with key stakeholders and interested parties, in 2010 Bord na Móna launched its first Biodiversity Action Plan 2010-2015. The plan sets out five clear objectives for the Bord na Móna ecology team to frame the work necessary to deliver a comprehensive understanding and awareness of how management of the Bord na Móna bogs into the future will be carried out responsibly and inclusive of the interests of all stakeholders. This paper outlines the challenges and progress of the plan to date and shares some of the lessons learned between 2010 and 2012.
