'Peatlands' is a project that started in 2020 documenting the environment and wildlife of Peatlands Park near Dungannon in Northern Ireland. It soon developed into a bigger project, looking into the benefits of peat lands and how fragile they are today, to bring to light the dangers involved in losing peat lands.

Peat lands are natural absorbers, and store twice as much carbon compared to all the forests in the world. hence why it is so vital to protect them. 

Peat lands today are drying out due to climate change. Peat lands are meant to be wet and over flooded to help maintain the ecosystem of sphagnum moss, heather and dragonflies. If the land drys out, it will release all the carbon it has stored which is devastating news for us as it is more damaging than clouds of smoke.
