Little Tern Conservation Project
In collaboration with the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Heritage Council, the Louth Nature Trust has already embarked on managing the Little Tern Conservation Project at Baltray.
Little Terns are Ireland's rarest breeding seabirds which nest at only a few sites in Ireland. They require protection as the birds nest on the beach, leaving their chicks and their eggs vulnerable and in need of protection from dogs, walkers, various natural predators and other disturbances.
