Applications are being sought from Kerry people who want to get involved in the Curlew Conservation Programme.

There are just 150 breeding pairs of the bird remaining in the Republic of Ireland; a 96% decline in the population according to the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

It’s estimated the bird will become extinct within a decade if conservation works are not carried out.

In Kerry, the programme is focused on the Stack’s Mountains.

Applications can be made to the NPWS Agri-Ecology Unit by March 5th.
