The Snipe Conservation Alliance is a network of enthusiasts (both scientists and non-scientists) interested in the study, monitoring, management and conservation of snipe species in Ireland, focussed on the common snipe and jack snipe. The ambition of the group is to provide a resource to help us better understand the ecology of our snipe species, to determine breeding and wintering populations and ultimately to ensure their conservation.

We believe the interests of snipe are best served by those prepared to undertake the necessary work of habitat management. This is a partnership process, and objectives will only be achieved through engagement with government departments, local communities and landowners who wish to see snipe remain on our upland and lowland bogs and wetlands.
