On our wild moorlands grows an amazing plant called sphagnum. When sphagnum is growing healthily, this plant powerhouse takes as much carbon out of the atmosphere as a tropical rainforest.

It costs £25 to plant one square metre of sphagnum moss and create a healthy moor.

Thanks to you, we’ve raised £30,100 for The Climate Project so far. This will restore 1,200 square meters of sphagnum on our Peak District moors.

Is this the most important plant on earth?

Peat moorlands cover 15% of the UK, but many have been dug up, drained or destroyed. The Peak District moorland landscape is now the most degraded in Europe and damaged peat can be a great carbon emitter. 

Moors for the Future was founded in 2003 to fight back. So far they’ve transformed over nearly 8,000 acres of peat moors across the Peak District and South Pennines.
