How exactly is a moor restored?
Many moors have been drained over decades. Therefore, a central element of renaturation is to close or divert these drainage channels in order to restore the original water level. At the same time, so-called decussulation takes place.
This involves the removal of trees and shrubs that have spread across the drained areas. This creates space for the original bog plants, which are then selectively reintroduced.
How will my sponsorship contribution be used?
As a Moor Pat:in, you make a decisive contribution to saving and protecting valuable moorland landscapes. This commitment enables us to support renaturation projects directly on site. This means that degraded moors are restored and returned to their natural state.
Our scientific expertise helps us to develop and implement the most effective protective measures. Your support also helps to inform the general public about the importance of peatlands.
How can I track the progress of my sponsorship?
Transparency is very important to us. That’s why we want our patrons to know exactly how your contributions are used and what difference they make. For this reason, you will receive regular reports from us on the progress of the moorland projects we support.
We also invite you to special events or guided tours. Here you have the opportunity to experience the projects up close and get an idea of the work on site.
