Marches Mosses Boglife

The project aims to restore Britain’s 3rd largest lowland raised bog within the Fenn’s, Whixall & Bettisfield Mosses and Wem Moss NNRs near Whitchurch, Shropshire and Wrexham in Wales. The LIFE project is led by Natural England working in partnership with Natural Resources Wales and the Shropshire Wildlife Trust. The multi-million pound project is supported by an EU LIFE grant.

Thanks to National Lottery, a Heritage Grant has been awarded to Shropshire Wildlife Trust to unlock almost £5m of European funding. This ambitious project has been created in partnership with Natural England, Natural Resources Wales and Shropshire Wildlife Trust and will bring a much welcome injection of investment for the area over the next five years.
