Marches Boglife project

As of 2016, the Marches Mosses Boglife project commenced thanks to funding from HLF and Life funding. This is a £5 million project to continue the restoration of the habitats of Fenn's, Whixall, Bettisfield and Wem mosses. Collectively the mosses form the third largest lowland raised peatbog in the UK. Lowland raised peatbogs are one of the rarest habitats on the planet and act as a carbon store, holding carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.
