Loughs Agency announced as new Corporate Bronze Member of Leave No Trace Ireland

Date: 03/11/2022

Loughs Agency is delighted to announce becoming a Bronze Member of Leave No Trace Ireland.

In partnering with Leave No Trace Ireland, Loughs Agency will reinforce its calls for water users to become environmental stewards in the Foyle and Carlingford catchment areas, while its educational initiatives will highlight the organisation’s ethos to school pupils.

Sharon McMahon, Loughs Agency CEO, commented: “We are delighted to become Leave No Trace Ireland’s newest Corporate Bronze Member. The values of both organisations are closely aligned as we share the common goal of protecting and conserving our natural environment.

“It is now more important than ever for all water users, ranging from anglers to those partaking in recreational activities such as sailing, canoeing and coastal camping, to ensure they abide by the seven key principles outlined by the organisation. Disposing of waste properly and minimising the effects of fire are two of these, which will form part of our environmental messaging moving forward.

“We are excited to work with Leave No Trace Ireland and we’re optimistic that through meaningful partnerships such as this, we can raise awareness of our roles and responsibilities in ensuring that everyone gets to enjoy the natural world for many years to come.”

Loughs Agency will be implementing Leave No Trace Principles into its work, and through its membership, will embed the ethos further into its educational initiatives.
