A project run by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is removing scrub (small trees) scattered across 379 hectares (937 acres) of rare lowland raised peat bogs.

The LIFE Welsh Raised Bogs project aims to restore seven of the very best examples of lowland raised bogs sites in Wales, this work will improve the condition of this rare and important habitat to a more favourable condition.

Raised bogs in good condition can be viewed as a natural solution within our ecosystems. They help stop flooding by storing large amounts of water, they act as a filter to improve water quality. The peat also stores carbon from the atmosphere helping in the fight against climate change.
