Conservation

Roseroot is one of the Causeway's celebrity species

Roseroot is one of the Causeway's celebrity species

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.

Volunteering

Retail volunteer, Niamh, lending a hand in the causeway shop

From replenishing shelves to pulling up ragwort, we couldn't manage this site without our volunteers.

Email Eleanor Killough for more information about volunteering opportunities.

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. 

Community

Our outreach activities are concentrated in the towns and villages around the Causeway, particularly Bushmills.

We lend time, resources and expertise to many projects.
