Climate and nature

The Isle of Wight National Landscape includes a variety of many habitats found in south-eastern England. These include habitats that have a significant role in the sequestration and storage of carbon including saltmarsh, peatlands and woodland as well as coastal (blue carbon) habitats such as saltmarsh, seagrass beds and seaweed forests.

The UK Government’s Environment Improvement Plan and the Colchester Declaration have provided opportunities for Isle of Wight National Landscape to contribute to the maintenance and increase in the habitats that contribute to the reduction in carbon emissions.
