The newly added transfers reflect the fact that the Giant’s Causeway and Causeway Coast was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1986 as a natural site in recognition of its geological and geomorphological values, its history of scientific study and exceptional landscape values – it’s Outstanding Universal Value. (Watch our video to learn more).
This project is part of a suite of projects delivered by the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust on behalf the World Heritage Site Steering Group and funded by Northern Ireland Environment Agency. This Steering Group consists of organisations such as; National Trust, Moyle District Council etc. Learn more.
The transfers serve as a reminder that the site is Northern Ireland’s only World Heritage Site and demonstrates the partnership work which goes into delivering projects at the World Heritage Site.
