Peatland Restoration

Peatlands are an amazing natural resource; they’re great for wildlife and the environment as they provide habitat, clean water, and they capture climate-changing carbon.

We are fortunate enough to have quite a few peatlands areas in South Lanarkshire, and The Friends of Langlands Moss is a great place to find out more.

The Scottish Government is spending £10 million on Peatland Restoration during 2017-18 and has made this means of storing carbon a central plank of its long-term Climate policy, which was debated in the Chamber on Thursday.

Watch the video below to find out more about this amazing natural resource, and if you’d like to find out more about the Peatland Action Project then please visit www.snh.gov.uk/peatlandaction.
