Project partners met with LIFE-monitor NEEMO at Mount Lucas Windfarm to discuss activities and progress to date as well as plans in place for the coming year.
The following day a number of peatlands were visited to build understanding of current and ideal conditions. Lots of interesting flora and fauna were spotted, with the team delighted to be out on a field visit. It was a reminder of the importance of healthy and restored peatlands, which act as carbon stores and reduce the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Thriving bogs also support multiple other benefits - protecting biodiversity, maintaining water quality and providing a space for wellbeing. Information shared during the visits will be incorporated into the project plans going forward.
