Our work in Northern Ireland
We're currently working to restore the Kitchen Garden back to its 1930s arrangement and we need your help.
Adapting to a changing climate
Overlooking Strangford Lough in County Down, the Mount Stewart estate is affected by climate change in many ways. Rising sea levels threaten to damage wildlife-rich mudflats on the shores of the lough and destroy islands that provide habitats for seabirds and seals. The sea plantation, which protects the house and gardens against the damaging effects of storms and saltwater, is also being eroded. Watch this video to find out what the National Trust is doing to make this precious landscape more resilient for people and nature. Measures include the creation of important saltmarsh habitats that lock up carbon and support wildlife.
The Mourne Mountains are the highest and most dramatic mountain range in Northern Ireland. Beloved by hikers, the Mournes have long inspired writers and storytellers. A landmark of international importance, its 12 peaks have been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Find out more about our work as caretakers of Slieve Donard and Slieve Commedagh including our recovery activity following the recent fire and donation appeal to support this effort.
Conservation is at the heart of what we do as a charity. Here are some of the current projects we are working on to protect our special places for everyone, for ever.
