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.
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.
