Available only in Ireland
52 min 00 secs
In recent decades, more and more moors have disappeared - drained for agriculture or to extract peat. With fatal consequences: Natural peatlands are true "CO2 vacuum cleaners", but when drained they release C02 that has been bound for centuries.

They are transforming drained moors in Germany, Latvia and Lithuania back to their original form - species and climate protection in one.
