March Moss, the third largest lowland grass hut in the UK, was once known for its oil and fruit fields. Now, the pea forests are a leading example of how to fight climate change.
A.D. In 1990, land ownership was revoked by natural resources in Wales, Natural Resources Wells and the Shopshire Wildlife Trust in 2016 before joining the European Bogliff Project.
The 2,500 hectares of pea bogs, which cross the Welsh-England border between Wrexham and Shopshire, have been cleared of trees and shrubs, and boreholes have been created to restore the bog water tables.
The 30th anniversary will also see the spread of NNR to include 237 hectares of land added to the renovation work.
Tony Juniper, chairman of Natural England, said:
The 30-year-old step to rejuvenate our big pig farm is paying dividends by helping to cope with the climate crisis, and at the same time, it has increased its unusual ecosystem.
Places like March Moss are an example of what can be done to cope with our greatest environmental catastrophe by naming that restoration with modern restoration methods and conservation as a national conservation and special scientific site. Desire.
Although they contain Marcius Moss, Cadney Moss and two NRS (Fen, Wicks and Betisfield Field Moses and Wem Moss), they are actually one big boogie – an acidic suitable for slow-ripening and carbon-like spaghetti moose. . It is only when peas are cut, digested and dried – now mostly used for fruits and vegetables – that carbon is released. That is why gardeners are encouraged to play their part in the fight against climate change.
Sir David Hensho, chairman of Natural Resources Wales, said.
The only way to maintain their rich biodiversity and continue to provide the full ecological services associated with these areas such as carbon storage, natural water management and many other services is to restore and preserve grasslands.
This cross-border project, as well as other projects in Wales and beyond, will significantly contribute to tackling nature and climate emergencies.
Richard Grindell, chairman of Shopshire Wildlife Trust.
Schroeder has its own role to play in reducing CO2 Releases and efforts to restore and expand sites such as FWB Mosses will be key to fighting the climate crisis. But mosses are also home to unusual insects and birds that depend on the acid nature of the flower. The declining wildlife species have returned to the area as the restoration progresses.
It is encouraging to see what 3 decades of partnership has created – think about what could happen in another 30 years!
March Moss is the short name for Fen, Weeks and Betfield Field Moses NRM, Wem Moss and Cadney Moss. It is also in the international interest in the Scientific Interest Center (SSS), the Special Protection Area (ACC) and Ramsar Ratland.

Natural Resources Wells Wells and coastal waters are a source of natural and cultural resources, a foundation for economic and social activity, and a place for recreation and learning. The aim is to make the area an integral part of everyone’s life in Wales. March Moss is funded by the Natural Resources Wells and funded by the Government of Wales through the National Petroleum Action Plan. Visit www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk for more.
Shropshire Wildlife Trust is a conservation organization established in 1962 to protect and conserve Shiroshihire wildlife. This is done by direct conservation of wildlife and habitat, research, and human contact with wildlife.
The Marches Mosses BogLIFE project is a five-year, multi-million pound development package and is part of a partnership with Natural England, Natural Resources Wales and Shopshire Wildlife. The funding provided additional funding for 63 hectares of land, and increased the water level to 1890 hectares to improve the high groundwater level. New recycling techniques, such as cell and contour binders, will help the mosaic hold more water and further withstand the effects of climate change. The project also aims to rehabilitate wetlands, Fen, Willow and Alder Carr wetlands, deforested settlements, and an experimental site to convert grazing and forest land into pea. Pollution is taking place in the pigs’ nest, and new tourist facilities are being created. This work is being generously funded by the European Life Program and thanks to the National Lottery Players, the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
National Natural Resources (NRSs) have been established to protect some of our most important habitats, species and geology and to provide “external laboratories” for research. NRS provide great opportunities for public, school and specialist interest groups to experience wildlife for the first time and learn more about nature conservation.
