Wild Moors

We're working to create wilder moors

Wild Moors seeks to unlock an area of the UK’s uplands the size of Greater London for regeneration by 2030.

Through an intensive programme of burning, draining and wildlife persecution lasting many decades the UK’s uplands have become severely degraded. These carbon-rich habitats are drying up and wildlife and communities have been left vulnerable to climate change.

We need a step change. We must to act. Wild Moors is working to accelerate the transition to a net-zero, climate resilient future by creating an upland environment which is respected, restored and protected.

Our Vision and Mission

Wild Moors’ vision is for the uplands to be respected, restored and protected.

We work with communities, governments and companies to unlock moorland from grouse shooting for the restoration of wildlife and habitats.
