Today is World Wetlands Day. So a perfect day to celebrate some of the best wet places for wildlife and people in Central Scotland – 2 bogs, a swamp and some islands.
Wetlands are important and getting more important in these times of climate change. They are a natural solution to help to buffer a changing climate by storing carbon, reducing the impacts of extreme weather events and providing a home for special wildlife.
Scottish Natural Heritage manages by restoring and conserving, about 1200 ha (that’s the equivalent of nearly 3000 football pitches) of wetlands in central Scotland across these 3 special nature reserves, Loch Lomond NNR, Blawhorn Moss NNR and Flanders Moss NNR.

Fancy a visit? – find out how here.
