Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Wild Peak project

the Wild Peak project aims to connect, restore and create wild spaces across the Dark Peak.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust is launching its Wild Peak project, which aims to connect, restore and create wild spaces across the Dark Peak.

Part of the project is looking at nature-led land management, income generation and how they can support land owners, whether this is through guidance on what government schemes to join (ELMS, EWCO, HLS) or setting up nature-based enterprises such as glamping and guided wild walks.

The project is also looking at the feasibility of species reintroductions including pine marten, beaver and black grouse. If you are a landowner within the Dark Peak and are interested in finding out more, or a landowner in the Derwent Valley and would like to help improve woodland connectivity then get in touch with DWT at wildpeak@derbyshirewt.co.uk .
