With the German Moor Conservation Fund, we make an important contribution to the renaturalisation of moors and thus effectively help to reduce CO2 emissions. Currently, we support 14 projects across Germany, protecting a total moorland area of approximately 640 hectares. And because neither moorland nor global warming stop at national borders, we also help to protect moorland abroad. Through the International Moor Conservation Fund, we focus on Eastern Europe. The first project is located in Slowinski National Park on Poland’s Baltic Sea coast. Through the LIFE Peat Restore project, we help to renaturalise 5,300 hectares of moorland throughout Europe with a focus on the Baltic States.
One hundred years of large-scale peat cutting and intensive farming mean the escape of some 180,000 tonnes of CO2 over the next 200 years. This can only be prevented through consistent renaturalisation. And this is our mission.
