£6 million invested in restoring nature’s natural carbon store in Northern England

A new £6 million project launches today to help fix large swathes of Pennine peatland over the next four years. The project, Pennine PeatLIFE, which will take place in areas of the North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland, will fix currently damaged areas of blanket bog or ‘peat bog’, so that they once more provide homes for wildlife, store carbon to help us combat climate change and help filter clean water for us to drink.
