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:

  • Funding for nature conservation to replace existing EU funding programmes such as LIFE+ and INTERREG.

We need new nature friendly agriculture legislation that will enable farmers and nature to thrive together, creating a countryside that is both productive and bursting with wildlife. This animation explains why this needs to happen in Northern Ireland:
