MOSS PRO­JECT FUND­ING

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

The RSPB’S Spread­ing the Moss pro­ject has re­ceived fund­ing worth £250,000 from land­fill tax char­ity, WREN. It will be spent on plant­ing sphag­num moss over 100 hectares of the moor, co-man­aged by the RSPB and United Util­i­ties. It should help in­crease the amount of blan­ket bog, a glob­ally scarce habi­tat. It helps tackle cli­mate change by trap­ping car­bon, and also pro­vides wa­ter fil­tra­tion, which helps threat­ened moor­land birds, such as Curlew and Golden Plover.
