NIEA is an Agency within the Department of Environment with approximately 800 staff.

We take the lead in advising on, and in implementing, the government's environmental policy and strategy in Northern Ireland. We carry out a range of activities, which promote the government's key themes of sustainable development, biodiversity and climate change.

We aim to be recognised as the leading body responsible for protecting, conserving and promoting the environment and heritage in Northern Ireland and are working towards four long term environmental outcomes:

  • the sustainable use and protection of our natural resources
  • improved conservation and management of our natural heritage
  • improved conservation and protection of our built heritage
  • better public awareness and understanding of the environment

  • Links to both and

    The NIEA Natural Heritage Grants Programme (NHGP) has part-funded the development of this raptor database through a grant awarded to the NIRSG and Golden Eagle Trust Ltd.
