Our Hills 2 Oceans (H2O) campaign is calling on everyone to get involved in a litter pick to help remove as much litter and plastic from our hills, mountains and crags as possible so it doesn’t end up in our oceans.
The BMC’s Mend Our Mountains campaign encourages everyone who values the hills, mountains and landscapes of Britain to donate and protect the place they love. It’s come a long way from our very first, ‘one-off’ crowdfunding drive in 2016. Since then we’ve raised close to a million pounds, and we’re set to raise even more in the coming years.
Are you planning on escaping the crowds and staying out in the wild overnight? Whether you're wild camping or vanning here are some golden rules to make sure you respect the wild.
The Climate Project is a BMC campaign to support the work of Moors for the Future. Out on our wild moorlands grows an amazing plant called sphagnum. When sphagnum is growing healthily, this little plant powerhouse takes as much carbon out of the atmosphere as a tropical rainforest. We're helping restore the moors.
Each year, moorland fires have a devastating effect on wildlife, livestock and people, and can often destroy the underlying peat that is crucial in our fight against climate change. Worldwide, peatland contains more than 550 gigatonnes of carbon, twice as much carbon as all of the world’s forests.
We’re calling on government to make the use of disposable barbecues on open moorland a criminal offence with a severe penalty attached for anyone in breach of this.
We're part of a network of environmental, countryside and heritage non-governmental organisations working across Wales to ensure a thriving Welsh environment for future generations.
WEL supports its members in engaging with the Welsh Government and Parliament, and helps them to work together to develop effective environmental policy and practice.
