CON­SER­VA­TION AWARD

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

RSPB Dove Stone in the Peak Dis­trict has been awarded the Natura 2000 Con­ser­va­tion Award in recog­ni­tion of their work in restor­ing 2,500 hectares of im­por­tant blan­ket bog moor­land. The project, which has been un­der­taken by teams of vol­un­teers, in­volves plant­ing bare peat­land with sphag­num moss and other plants, and re­pair­ing ero­sion. When com­plete, the re­stored bog will act as a car­bon store, a nat­u­ral wa­ter fil­ter, and a habi­tat per­fect for Dun­lin, Curlew and Red Grouse.
