Project 1 Testing the efficacy of the NI Environmental Farming Scheme in NI Project: Testing the efficacy of the NI EFS (Environmental Farming Scheme) in Northern Ireland
In partnership with lead partners BTO & RSPB, KRC Ecological are assisting with field co-ordination of a team of professional bird surveyors to undertake breeding and winter season monitoring of EFS and control habitat across NI over 6 years. The project is funded by DAERA-NI and running 2021-2027 will examine responses of bird populations (mostly farmland granivores and breeding waders) to EFS management prescriptions. KRC are involved in this project given prior experience (with RSPB/AFBI) of assessing the efficacy of the NICMS/CMS project between 2007 and 2011
KRC Ecological undertook innovative ground-breaking conservation work in support of our landscape restoration project. We were very impressed both with the field skills of the team and their engagement with local communities.
