European Commission recognises the twinning efforts of LIFE projects in the UK and Finland

Pennine PeatLIFE in the UK and Hydrology LIFE in Finland are 2 examples of the LIFE projects working to restore this priority habitat.  While the landscapes differ in each country, conservationists are combining their experiences of working on similar strategies. Paul Leadbitter, Peatland Programme Manager from the North Pennines AONB Partnership, explains how the projects got together.

A new peatland themed PhD opportunity.

In partnership with Newcastle University, Durham University, Northumbrian Water and the North Pennines AONB Partnership, a new IAPETUS PhD project:  Surface and sub-surface changes in peatland during restoration: an insight into hydrological and vegetation dynamics from new technologies is now open to interested applicants.
