NATURE & WILDLIFE
The Peak District is a unique place of stunning landscapes and an abundance of wildlife, all of which need different conditions to live – and that affects where you'll find them.
The Peak Experience guide, Take a Walk on the Wild Side, will help you to discover more about the variety of landscapes and habitats of the Peak District, and enjoy getting out to experience for yourself the area's birds, trees, flowers, butterflies, fungi, mammals and water creatures.
Moors for the Future would like your help! Have fun and do a moorland bird survey whilst walking in the Peak District National Park this summer. It's really simple, and the great thing is you'll be collecting scientific data which will make a real difference to national climate change initiatives and our precious moorlands.

If you have visited the moorlands of the Peak District and South Pennines or flown over them recently you may have seen the start of a green revolution.
Since 2003, Moors for the Future have been working to reverse 150 years of damage that left large areas of these uplands bare of vegetation. Individual land owners and managers in the Peak District realised that the problem of moorland erosion could not be tackled by one organisation alone and in February 2003 the Moors for the Future Partnership was formed.
