New peatland communication tools

Julia Martin- Ortega led the development of  two peatland condition assessment tools. The tools, one for the general public (learning module) and one for land managers (condition assessment) are available online.

o   Cond. Assess tool: http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/peatland-modules/?type=assess

o   Learning mod.: http://www.see.leeds.ac.uk/peatland-modules/?type=learning

Both of them include a mechanism by which the peatland condition drawings and associate narratives and icons representing the benefits in terms of carbon storage, water quality and wildlife habitat can be downloaded for free use by anyone who would like to. They also include a feedback questionnaire to gather further views and preferences by the public and land managers. For more information please contact Julia.
