The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)

The meres and mosses are home to a range of special wildlife, such as water voles, white-faced darter dragonflies and breeding lapwings. It is one of the areas in the UK that the RSPB has identified as a priority for wildlife conservation across the wider landscape.

Through working in partnership with others, we want to make the meres and mosses better for wildlife, and people. Somewhere for people to celebrate nature and a countryside that sustains the supply of food, fuel, fibre and water that people need now and in the future.

As part of the programme the RSPB employs a Wetland Restoration Officer on behalf of the Meres and Mosses Landscape Partnership, who works with landowners to protect and improve the special wetlands of the meres and mosses.
