Your area has a rich wildlife and landscape, but do not forget your historic environment. Indeed, the Causeway Coast and Glens is full of history with cultural, built and natural heritages. These heritages need to be preserved and promoted to be enjoyed by everybody (you, us, your visitors, your children …) and must not disappear or be damaged or reduced. Be proud of your heritage and encourage your visitors to discover and enjoy it, this will keep it alive and animated.
