Peat restoration and climate change

SOUTH MILLS, NC- March 15 : Eric Soderholm, a wetland restoration specialist for The Nature Conservancy checks a monitoring gauge in the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge on March 15, 2022 near South Mills, NC. The refuge, which straddles the NC and VA border, is the largest remnant of a forested swamp that once covered more the a million acres. Hopefully what we are doing here can make it easier to continue living here, Soderholm said. This is a no regrets strategy. Peat takes thousands of years to build up in these wetlands, sequestering carbon, mercury and nitrogen that is released again as the peat is exposed. Rewetting and preserving the swamp is an attempt to turn the area back into a carbon sink, rather than a source of carbon release. (Photo by Carolyn Van Houten/The Washington Post via Getty Images)
