Peatlands Europe

Preserving Biodiversity, Combating Climate Change, and Safeguarding Water Resources

CarbonSequestration and Climate Change Mitigation

Peatlands serve as natural carbon sinks, capturing and storing vast amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. They cover only 3% of the Earth's surface, yet store twice as much carbon as all the world's forests combined. By preserving and restoring these ecosystems, we play a vital role in mitigating the impacts of climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and maintaining the delicate balance of our planet's atmosphere.

Biodiversity and Wildlife Habitats

These unique wetland ecosystems are home to a remarkable array of plant and animal species, many of which are rare and endangered. Peatlands provide essential habitats for migratory birds, insects, amphibians, and mammals, supporting the overall health and diversity of our ecosystems. By protecting peatlands, we are also conserving the rich biodiversity they harbor, ensuring the survival of countless species and the stability of our natural environment.

Water Regulation and Quality

Text: Peatlands play a vital role in regulating water flow and maintaining water quality. Their sponge-like structure absorbs excess water during periods of heavy rainfall, reducing the risk of floods and protecting surrounding communities. Furthermore, peatlands act as natural water filters, purifying water as it passes through the layers of peat and improving the quality of water resources for people and wildlife alike. By preserving these valuable ecosystems, we help ensure clean and stable water supplies for current and future generations.

Our Mission: Protect, Restore, and Promote European Peatlands

Facilitating Collaboration, Connecting Resources, and Building Partnerships for a Greener Future

We are dedicated professionals and passionate individuals who act as project managers, facilitators, and connectors in the realm of peatland conservation and restoration.

We accelerate action for peatlands – acting as the hands and brains supporting scientists, researchers, policymakers, and NGOs. By coordinating resources and expertise, we help implement innovative and sustainable solutions for peatland restoration, conservation and sustainable management.

We work at the intersection of policy, science and business – bridging the gap between needs, resources, and funding to ensure the success of these vital endeavours.

In addition to project management, we raise awareness about the importance of peatlands and advocate for their protection and restoration. Through community engagement and collaboration, Peatlands Europe plays a crucial role in safeguarding these unique ecosystems for generations to come.
