Draining peat moorland causes erosion, soil loss, carbon release: repairing this damage is one great way to act for climate change, nature and the enjoyment of wild places https://t.co/vmvqdmgu7y

We try and cut #heather brash from close to the bare #peat sites, this minimises the transport costs and also prevents us transferring unwanted pests/diseases from site to site #penninepeatlife #NorthPenninesAONB #eulife #restoration #Cumbria

Here we can see #moorland #grips (straight lines), that were cut into the #peat as per past government grants, surrounded by bare & eroding peat. These grips drain the surrounding #peatlands and in this case degrades the vegetation #penninepeatlife #yorkshire #eulife
