Legal and policy

Putting the law on the side of the environment

Wild Moors works to advance protection of the upland environment and to ensure laws are strictly enforced to the benefit of moorland wildlife and habitats.

Advocating for a better future

Wild Moors works within the legal and policy system to secure stronger protections that benefit upland conservation across the UK. In places where we find the law to be insufficient, Wild Moors submits recommendations to national and local governments to improve protection and ensure restoration of upland wildlife, habitats and local communities. These recommendations are then often adopted by governments. In many cases, we collaborate with MPs and other elected officials to secure and influence government policy.

Petitioning for positive change

Wild Moors generates public awareness and channels support for policy changes through petitions and peaceful protests, calling on companies and governments to enact positive changes to protect and restore upland wildlife and habitats.
