The Giant's Causeway and Causeway Coast was declared a World Heritage site in 1986, and an Area of Special Scientific Interest in 2000. The land surrounding the causeway nourishes many forms of life - from the narrow-mouthed whorl snail to roseroot, a relatively rare plant thought to have medicinal properties.
Our committed Conservation Officer, Dr Cliff Henry, along with a team of volunteers, work hard to ensure the causeway is preserved and protected.
The Giant's Causeway is not just a visitor attraction, it is a valuable educational facility that provides a wealth of learning experiences for pupils.
We offer two programs for KS3 students - Geology Rocks: Exploring the Giant's Causeway and The Giant's Causeway: Managing a World Heritage Site.
