Bog blog

Explore blanket bog, the Cinderella habitat, through blog posts from our colleagues and partners...

Blanket bog is an ombrotrophic peatland habitat - that means it depends on rain, snow, hail and fog for all of its nutrients. You can find out about the amazing places and beautiful species we work in and around on our habitats and species page.

Around 80% of Yorkshire's blanket bog is damaged in some way.
