Why restore Fenn's and Whixall Mosses?

This illustrated talk by Senior Reserve Manager Joan Daniels will examine why it is so important to save the world’s bogs


Over the last 19 years, Natural England and the Countryside Council for Wales have been restoring Fenn’s & Whixall Mosses National Nature Reserve near Wrexham, after its near destruction from commercial peat mining. Clearing pine forests, trees and scrub and damming up thousands of ditches to restore this site comes at a high price. Is it worth it? This illustrated talk by Senior Reserve Manager Joan Daniels will examine why it is so important to save the world’s bogs for their irreplaceable record of the past, their wonderful boggy bio-diversity, the eco-system services they give us and to save us from the impact their destruction has on climate change.
