Description
During the preparation of the Northern Ireland Biodiversity Strategy (2002) an initial list of Northern Ireland Priority Species requiring conservation action due to decline, rarity and/or importance at an all-Ireland or UK level, was identified. A more comprehensive list of Northern Ireland Priority Species was later published in March 2004. In 2010, following a review of the UK list, the Northern Ireland priority species list was reviewed by the NI Species Delivery Group. The current list stands at 481 species. This list is currently under review (2019).
