The climate crisis - fight it on your doorstep

Fires in Australia, drought in USA, flooding in Cumbria. 

Climate change isn’t just happening somewhere else, it’s happening here in Cumbria.

Many of us feel helpless, and ask ourselves ‘what can I do to help stop climate change?’

"We must immediately begin improving carbon absorption, drawing it down and locking it up again, while also reducing emissions. We must stop the harm we are causing the natural world that is pushing other species to the point of extinction. If we don’t address the causes of climate change in time, communities across the world stand to simultaneously face multiple intensifying climate hazards that pose a broad threat to humanity"

Cumbria Wildlife Trust has been restoring peatlands across the Lakeland fells since 2015. This vitally important work means 7,694 tonnes of carbon dioxide is locked into peatland soils this year and every year in the future. With your help we can do even more.

Donating a regular amount every month will help combat climate change and tackle the biodiversity crisis.
