An organisation that's been restoring Glasson Moss on the Solway coast is appealing for volunteers.

The Solway Wetlands Landscape Partnership are teaching people about the importance of bog land - and are calling for others to help teach.

Cumbria has two thirds of the remaining lowland raised mires in England.

As we lose the mires, one of the things that happens is that they're a fantastic carbon store. So in terms of global warming, these are really important environments as part of our efforts to reduce global warming."
