Saving peatlands (brochure)
Peatlands support millions of people around the world, store twice as much carbon as all forests worldwide, and are home to many threatened species of plants and animals. Peatland degradation has devastating economic and social consequences. Wetlands International promotes global and national land use practices and policies that counter peatland destruction and degradation, promote conservation incentives and support local communities.
Help us to save and restore the world’s peatlands for people, climate and biodiversity!
