Delivery of Citizen Science

This contract is part of CANAPE (Creating a New Approach to Peatland Ecosystems) is a European funded Interreg North Sea Region project which aims to deliver peatland restoration; develop new peatland products and bring economic benefits. The CANAPE website http://northsearegion.eu/canape/about/ provides further context. WP4 is about engaging with businesses to bring to market new products sourced from peatlands, based on sound economic benefits, as well as raising awareness of peatland ecosystems and benefits to wildlife to the local community. The citizen science part of WP4 is the focus of this tender. The citizen science project will include setting up the system for collecting data on the depth of peat and the collection of the data, which will be used subsequently and outside the scope of this tender to inform management of fens and water. The long-term objectives are: - to use the data to decide future interventions in peatlands (such as where to create turf ponds) - to maintain a record of the evolution of peat depths over time (historic resources) - to better understand the vegetation by understanding the depth and quality of peat that it is rooting into - to shape and influence future policy related to peatland management.
