Brexit is bringing huge changes to how we manage the environment in Northern Ireland. This brings both serious challenges and exciting opportunities to shape the laws and governance that protect nature.

Nature Matters NI

Nature Matters NI is a campaign led by a coalition of environmental organisations in Northern Ireland. We’re on a mission to protect nature so that we can secure the best future for our environment after Brexit.

Nature Matters NI is campaigning for:

  • A sustainable agriculture and land use policy that is fair to farmers, good for nature and benefits society.
  • Nature and environmental protection to ensure our most treasured species and habitats can thrive.
  • A nature–friendly marine and fisheries policy to protect our seas and marine biodiversity.
  • Funding for nature conservation to replace existing EU funding programmes such as LIFE+ and INTERREG.

The island of Ireland to be considered as a single biogeographic unit with effective mechanisms in place to resolve and manage cross border environmental issues and prevent unfair competition post–Brexit.
