CONSERVATION & RESTORATION PROJECTS
THE NATIONAL TRUST’S CONSERVATION & RESTORATION PROJECTS ON KINDER
The National Trust acquired Kinder in 1982. The specialist challenges presented by the eroded and diminished, fragile and rare moorland heathered environment has been given considerable attention since that time, and the mountain is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Special Protection Area for Birds and a Special Area for Conservation. In 2010 the Trust began a £2.5 million restoration project with additional funding from Biffa, and all efforts to repair and maintain the landscape, much of which is pioneering at a global level, are being monitored.
The National Trust details all its activities on Kinder on their website.
