LIFE goes on!
Nov 2018

We are very pleased to announce that the That's LIFE - Restoring the Humberhead Peatlands Project has been granted an extension by the EU and will now continue until June 2019.

This extra time will allow us to complete vital works to restore the peatbog habitat across Thorne and Hatfield Moors, including bunding and dam construction to manage the water levels on site. We will be able to collect another season of data to monitor the impacts that our habitat improvements are having on the water levels and nightjars of the peatlands. It will also allow us to continue our programme of community engagement events and to work with local schools, with the exciting new Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve Work Base and Life Lab providing excellent facilities.

The completion of the Project will leave a truly lasting legacy for the UK's largest lowland raised bogs!
