CCGHT staff have been hard at work capturing and recording the spectacular features of our outstanding landscapes all across the Causeway Coast and Glens area.
The Fixed Point Photography project is a new initiative spearheaded by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. This scheme aims to capture and monitor the unique features which make up our Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As part of the project, CCGHT will be taking photographs at the same spot (or ‘fixed point’) at a range of sites across Antrim Coast and Glens, Causeway Coast and Binevenagh AONBs. These photos will be taken once every quarter and together they will help to paint a picture of the changes experienced by our AONBs over time. It is hoped that the new project will run for a minimum of 5 years, and will lead to a greater understanding of the challenges faced by designated landscapes and will assist in the development of improved conservation methods.
Such challenges include the impact on landscapes and habitats by visitors. The issue of littering across our 3 AONBs has been highlighted even at this early stage of the project.
When visiting our designated landscapes and AONBs it is important to try and ‘leave no trace’ where possible – do not litter.
