Marsh Clubmoss in Dorset

2024-03-22 12.26.54.jpg

Over the last two decades our monitoring has revealed a steady decline in Marsh Clubmoss on the Dorset Heaths, and while some vast sites still remain, the overall range has dramatically contracted.

Initial work had focussed on monitoring declines and working to improve management on the sites, but this, on its own, has not been enough to reverse the decline.

In 2023, with initial funding from the Natural England Species Recovery Programme, we have started working on a 'proof of concept' of moving plants into new and extant sites, to see whether translocation is a viable option, and whether particulate techniques are better than others. We all then be mounting these sites over the next ten years to gauge the success or failure of this work.

Since 2019 we have been working to prevent the extinction of Field Cow-wheat in Wiltshire, following on from the sale of its only privately owned site to new owners.

To date we have created 3 new sites for the species, which are all in their early days of establishment, with the eventual aim that they become self-sustaining by the year 2030.
