Secure and healthy peat bogs

Wardens at work on the High Peak Estate

You might need a trained eye to spot this, but we need the blanket bogs to be healthy.

Healthy bogs are wet, and covered by plants that rot down to form new peat. The bogs are threatened when the peat is exposed, when it dries out, and when it is worn away. We have to keep the blanket bogs healthy because they are important for the Nation; they can trap millions of tonnes of carbon, they are a harvesting ground for public water supplies, and they are home to a special and protected community of plants and animals.
