Welcome to the Flow Country, one of the world's last wild places, stretching across Caithness and Sutherland in the far north of Scotland. Gain an insight into Flows to the Future project, an ambitious project which is restoring areas of blanket bog in the heart of the Flow Country. This is a globally significant site, with a UNESCO World Heritage status in reach, equalling the status of the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef. This podcast demonstrates the importance of peatland to our environment and explains why the Flows area is unique.
Join Phil Baarda from NatureScot as he exchanges thoughts with colleagues Andrew Coupar and Ian Mitchell from our Golspie office. They look at the achievements of the partnership project as it nears completion, our knowledge of the role of peat and carbon storage and upcoming ways to connect people to this precious habitat.
