Welcome to The Vincent Wildlife Trust - Ireland
"I am delighted to say that 2015 is the VWT’s 40th year of working to safeguard the future of mammals in Britain and Ireland. As part of our anniversary celebrations we are launching a new look website later this month and over the year we will highlight our major achievements since 1975 and spotlight our new initiatives.
One new and important 40th anniversary initiative will be the launch of the Vincent Weir Bursary for innovative PhD studies. This is in honour of our founder, the late Hon. Vincent Weir and further details will be announced shortly. A commemorative book is also planned and due to be published at the end of the year.
I hope you will join us in our celebrations by supporting our work in whatever way you can and by contributing to the conservation of the rare or ‘difficult to study’ mammals on which we focus.
May I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped the Trust to get this far – I am very proud to be part of such a brilliantly focused and successful charity with such talented and committed people."
