Blue Carbon

Marine habitats are amongst the greatest carbon-sequestering habitats, equivalent to tropical rainforests. But they are challenging habitats to monitor and measure.

We know that the real value of Marine habitats in tackling climate change is significantly underestimated. Marine habitats and conservation areas are not being protected sufficiently leading to massive declines in our sea-life and dramatically effecting the ability of our seas to mitigate climate change. Several Wilder Carbon delivery partners are jointly looking for investment now to commission greater research into carbon storage and monitoring of UK marine habitats.

    Mercer's Farm

    Kent Wildlife Trust recently acquired an area of relic fen bordering its Ham Fen Nature Reserve. This extension to the fen is being re-wetted using a combination of natural ecosystem engineers - beaver and water buffalo. We need investment to develop our monitoring and remote sensing capability on this site – enabling the most accurate monitoring of the carbon storage increase on the site and the wildlife it supports.
