Peatland Action in 2017/18

Peatland Action has entered a new phase, with £8 million to spend on continuing Scotland-wide peatland restoration in 2017/18.

Since 2012, PeatlandACTION has set more than 10,000 hectares of degraded peatlands in Scotland on the road to recovery.

Can you help to continue the good work? PeatlandACTION offers funding to suitable peatland restoration projects. Applications opened on 1 April 2017 and will remain open until 31 October 2017 (subject to availability of funds).
