The program is a means of raising funds for the conservation of wildlife
habitats in Ireland, in particular wetlands. Funds are generated through
the sale of conservation stamps and limited edition artwork based on the
stamp. All funds raised are reserved solely for investment in habitat conservation.
Administrative costs for the program are underwritten from its own funds
by the NARGC which is the
exclusive Irish partner for the program. 80% of funds raised will be applied
to projects in Ireland and the remaining 20% will go towards the European
program for international projects.
