Scotland’s peatland projects get additional funding

A Scottish peatland restoration project has received an extra £3m in funding, bringing its total budget to £8m

The overarching Peatland Action Project, run by Scottish Natural Heritage, drives restoration projects at 100 sites and involves partners such as the national park authorities, Forest Enterprise Scotland, RSPB, Scottish Water and the Crichton Carbon Centre.

It aims to educate land managers, contractors and the public in the benefits of restoration and encourage better practice to enable carbon capture and water storage.

The project will help meet the aims of Scotland’s forthcoming national peatland plan which is expected to be launched this summer.
