Not only are mosslands a key habitat for endangered and rare species, but they also have the ability to store carbon dioxide. In an age where Climate Change issues are rife, mosslands hold the key to many concerns.

Our work in restoring and maintaining a mossland is crucial to this magnificent habitat. In order to extract peat, the land is drained and so the first stage in restoring a mossland is to re-wet. This is done by several process of land management including the building of dams to raise the water levels and begin the restoration process.
Take a closer look at our mossland sites:
One of the key aims of the mosslands project is to protect the remaining habitats in the North West from being destroyed.
By purchasing key mossland sites, we can protect them from destruction, and restore them to a healthy Living Landscape that will benefit both people and wildlife.
As a business you can fund the North West’s degraded mosses back to health, balancing out your unavoidable CO2 emissions and knowing your carbon gain.
