World Wetlands Day 2022: 'The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland' launched as e-book

February 2, 2022

 

To celebrate World Wetlands Day 2022, 'The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland' by the IUCN UK Peatland Programme's Clifton Bain has been launched as an e-book.

Peatlands are vitally important as a nature based solution to the climate and biodiversity crises but are often undervalued and misunderstood. Working with the IUCN UK Peatland Programme Clifton Bain’s new book sets out why peatlands should matter to us all and provides an overview of the huge conservation effort now under way, with case studies from across the UK.

The book is richly illustrated with photographs and maps of some of the country’s most stunning peatlands and provides detailed guidance to help people visit them. Clifton is a firm believer that through encouraging people to experience peatlands for themselves they can better appreciate how wonderful and important they are and raise more support for the global peatland conservation effort.

Celebrating World Wetlands Day, Clifton Bain of the IUCN UK Peatland Programme says:

“Getting out and enjoying peatlands is important for conservation and our own well-being. 'The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland’ is a guide to some of the most exciting and memorable nature experiences these countries have to offer and explains why it is so vital that we look after our peatlands."

The e-book is available via the following platforms:

For those who were unable to attend the launch event this is available to watch via Crowdcast.
