In our centenary year the Trust supported The Wildlife Trusts to research the fate of 17 iconic natural  sites in the Republic of Ireland. The sites were first identified by Charles Rothschild (the founder of the forerunner of The Wildlife Trust’s today) in 1914 as potential nature reserves. This report revisits these sites 100 years later to assess the changes to the sites over the past century.  The study identifies the main threats to the 17 sites and makes recommendations for safeguarding them and their wildlife into the future.
