Wetland Map Update for County Wexford 

County Wexford map of wetlands after inclusion of new wetland sites in 2013 A draft map of the wetlands in County Wexford has been compiled. The desk based research project identified a total of 309 potential wetland sites in Wexford based on aerial photographic analysis, analyisis of subsoils within the county and published reports on previously identified wetlands. 

This project undertaken by Wetland Surveys Ireland has located some 300 potential wetland sites in the county. The majority of the sites have little associated information on the wetland habitats that are likely to occur on the areas identified. 

A full county wetland survey is required to address this information deficit.

It is hoped that future wetland surveys of these sites within the county will allow additional site information to be obtained and more detailed site information to be displayed on the Wetland Map of Ireland.
