Geoheritage

Geoheritage

Geoheritage is "the abbreviated version of the term geological heritage. It is part of the natural heritage of a certain area constituted by geodiversity elements with particular geological value and hence worthy of safeguard for the benefit of present and future generations. Geoheritage can include both in situ elements (geosites) or ex situ elements (collections of geological specimens) with paleontological, geomorphological, mineralogical, petrological or stratigraphical significance, among others."; ProGEO (the European association for the conservation of the geological heritage). 

The Geoheritage programme works to p​​rotect and promote ​​​​​​sites of national and international geological importance in Ireland.
