What makes this habitat different?
Uplands are important for people and wildlife. They store lots of peat which is full of carbon. If the peat dries out it will release carbon dioxide which causes global warming. It also gathers much of our drinking water, so it's important we look after it. Many of our most cherished and visited landscapes are uplands, too.
For wildlife such as wading birds and birds of prey like eagles and hen harriers, uplands are really important.
