Moors for the Future is a partnership project to restore large parts of the internationally important Peak District moors. Through a programme of new initiatives it aims to:
Peat bogs in the Peak District - such as Bleaklow Plateau and Kinder Scout - naturally store carbon dioxide (CO2), the gas that contributes towards climate change. In fact it is estimated that Britain's peat bogs store the equivalent of 10 times the country's total CO2 emissions.
When these peat bogs are eroded due to pollution, overgrazing or fire damage they start leaking CO2 instead of storing it.
It is thought the 700 sq km of the southern Pennine hills alone could be leaking as much CO2 as a town with a population of 50,000 people.
We are carrying out important work to restore the Peak District's peat bogs so they are once again helping to tackle the effects of climate change.
