The Whorl Snail

We are undertaking a project in September and October 2022 of surveying, monitoring and condition assessment of the Narrow-mouthed whorl snail Vertigo angustior within the Killala Bay/Moy Estuary SAC. The survey requirement also includes searches for the other key Vertigo species, V. geyeri and V. moulinsiana along with other Irish Red List molluscs within the SAC. Allen and Mellon Environmental Limited will be performing this study for us and it is undertaken in association with The Heritage Council and the National Parks and Wildlife Services.

This project has been funded by The Heritage Council. The survey of the whorl snail in the Moy estuary has received financial support of €7,000 from The Heritage Council.
