Our partners

By joining up of some of the most successful peatland restoration 
organisations in Europe we can bring about a massive and urgent step change
in saving the majority of England’s upland peatlands before it is too late.

The North Pennines AONB Partnership’s peatland restoration programme aims to conserve and enhance the internationally important peatland resource within the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark.
Since 2003 the Moors for the Future Partnership has developed and delivered a landscape scale programme of blanket bog restoration, conserving and repairing the moors of the Peak District and South Pennines.
Yorkshire Peat Partnership is restoring peatlands in the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and northern parts of the South Pennines.

Track record

In the last two decades, the three lead organisations have restored about 1,100km2 (YPP – 323km2, NPAONB – 350km2, MFFP – 454km2).

This is a great start but despite this massive effort it is still less than 20% of the total area and, with a climate and biodiversity emergency, the time is now to pool our skills to make a revolutionary change in the rate of restoration of England’s upland peatlands.
