Help us to restore UK wetlands today. Your purchase will contribute to the conservation and regeneration of our precious wildlife-rich UK wetland ecosystems. Choosing to contribute to wetland restoration will have a big impact towards reversing the current nature crisis and protecting carbon rich habitat.

By choosing to fund Wetland Restoration:

✔️ You are protecting increasingly threatened habitat for the plants and animals who live there
✔️ You'll benefit future generations
✔️ You'll be helping our ecosystems store more carbon away for years

Wetlands are being destroyed or degraded at an alarming rate, almost three times faster than forests (The State of Global Wetlands Report) Wetland ecosystems play an essential role in sustaining our biodiversity, maintaining ecosystem resilience, and reversing climate change.

Why restore wetlands?

Healthy wetlands can store vast amounts of carbon and help in the battle against climate change. Wetlands are currently under threat due to draining, pollution from pesticides, intensive agriculture, waste dumping and large toxic spills. The significance of wetland biodiversity was stressed in the Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

The report identified wetlands as the most threatened ecosystem, impacting 40% of the world’s plant and animal species that live or breed in wetlands. 
Wetlands are highly effective at storing carbon when in a healthy state but can be sources of carbon dioxide and methane when degraded. Healthy peatlands alone can absorb twice as much carbon as forests.

Our wetlands have accumulated and stored carbon for thousands of years. They also work as water purification sources, help reduce the risk of serious flooding, and play a key role in the supply of clean and plentiful water.

Healthy UK wetlands are important habitats for many plant and animal species, often being wildlife-rich islands in otherwise hostile environments for our biodiversity. In the UK, important wetland areas include wet woodland, peatland, salt-marshes, swamps, flushes, marshy grasslands, and ponds.

Project details:

The Future Forest Company manages several sites with degraded wetlands. We wish to change this as fast as possible with your help, by conserving the best places, regenerating other areas, and even creating new wetlands. This includes peatlands, marshes, flushes and ponds.
