Qualifying interests

The eight Natura 2000 sites on the South Wexford Coast comprise six Special Protection Areas (SPAs) and seven Special Areas of Conservation (SACs). Thirty-seven named species of wild birds, together with wetland and waterbirds in general, are the qualifying interests of the SPAs. Sixteen habitats, including two priority ones (coastal lagoons and fixed sand dunes), and one animal (Grey Seal) are the qualifying interests of the SACs. Details in the PDF files below.
