Please help the RSPB and Tubney Charitable Trust save the Forsinain and Dyke peatlands in the Flow Country of Caithness and Sutherland.

Click the link above, or HERE.

To quote the RSPB:
"Peatland is one of our most precious and endangered resources, yet intensive agriculture, drainage and peat extraction continue to take their toll. Today only 1% of England's pristine lowland peat bog remains intact.
For over two decades, we have been campaigning to protect these vitally important places. They provide habitats for rare bird and insect species including snipe, curlews, large heath butterflies and dragonflies, as well as plants such as carnivorous sundews and butterworts.

"[The RSPB] have a chance to buy two of these plantations and remove the closely planted conifers. But we have to act quickly. Please give a gift today - before it's too late ... We have to act now, before this extraordinary landscape dries out."

£11 buys 113 square metres
£15 buys 154 square metres
£25 buys 257 square metres

I'm buying some, and I've notified the cash-rich CPS of this opportunity to save our remaining CP habitat.

If anyone else can donate, please do! :smile:
