Cumbria is lucky enough to have one of the last strongholds of this ancient type of Atlantic Woodland in England. We work to protect and regenerate this precious habitat.
Cumbria's Temperate Rainforests support some of the richest and most treasured habitats in our beautiful countryside. They contain a treasure trove of veteran trees, butterflies, birds, invertebrates, fungi, as well as valuable moss and lichen species with wonderful names such as Fairy beads, Elf’s ears, and Pixie cups.
Did you know only 1% of the habitat on the entire planet can support Temperate Rainforest?
These woodlands are under threat from climate change, disease and non-native species. If we lose them, they cannot be re-created.
