NatureScot - Peatland Action
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
