Year Closes With a Major Arctic Peatland System Secured, AFP in Media

kuusikkoaapa3Snowchange wishes all friends, partners and allies a good holiday season, winter solstice and Happy New Year 2021! We are proud to announce the purchase of “Makkara-latva-aapa“, an Arctic aapa mire in to the Landscape Rewilding Programme. This 330 hectares (815 acres) undisturbed peatland ecosystem is located in Ranua, close to the Arctic Circle in Finland.

Securing this aapa mire into the Landscape Rewilding Programme keeps a massive amount of carbon on the ground, secures a natural carbon sink for future generations and will protect a major bird and other wildlife refuge at the Arctic Circle. Snowchange worked with mr. Roland Göhde, from Göhde Foundation in Germany, to have a breakthrough for this site. We are extremely thankful for him for all the support.

A transformative year also closes with major international media – AFP and Phys report on action against climate change using Indigenous and traditional knowledge and science.

Snowchange thanks all supporters and friends.

We ll be announcing new steps in early January. Stay safe!
