MoorWILD is part of a series of 4 apps produced for the Moors for the Future project.
The four apps have been developed to help visitors to the moors learn more about the plants, wildlife and landscape features they may come across. Designed with the Peak District and South Pennines in mind, they will, however, be useful on moorlands across the UK.

New – Recordable species
The Peak District and South Pennine moors are the most south-easterly areas of blanket bog in Europe and as such are likely to be the first to be affected by climate change. You can help provide an early-warning system by submitting your sightings of the Community Science team’s ‘target’ species in this app (you can see which species we’re interested in by clicking on “Recordable” in the filter bar on the home page of the app). By doing this you are contributing to the understanding of moorland ecology and how it is changing.
