Peatland Action (PA) is a peatland restoration project run by Scottish Natural Heritage and funded mainly by Scottish Government. The funding primarily supports on-the-ground restoration activities. This includes:

  • installation of peat dams in man-made ditches to increase water levels
  • allowing the peat-building mosses called sphagnums to re-establish.
  • more novel techniques such as peat hag re-vegetating by using the surrounding vegetation to stabilise the bare eroding peat
