Dartmoor Mires Project
The Dartmoor Mires Project has been established to carry out restoration of Dartmoor's blanket bog in order to conserve and enhance this crucial habitat for upland wildlife, to improve water supply and increase the potential of south west England's blanket bog to store carbon and hence to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
On Dartmoor the blanket bog restoration work is being co-ordinated by Dartmoor National Park Authority and steered by a partnership of the Environment Agency, Duchy of Cornwall, Natural England, South West Water and the Dartmoor Commoners Council.
It also benefits from a wider partnership including the MOD, Forest of Dartmoor Commoners, RSPB, English Heritage, the Dartmoor Access Forum and the University of Exeter.
