Culm grassland is a unique, internationally important habitat, however it is fast-declining, with 92% of culm grassland lost in the past 100 years and 48% disappearing between 1984 and 1991 alone. Plantlife's Greena Moor nature reserve represents Cornwall's finest surviving area of culm; home to six England Red List vascular plants. However, many of the key species are present in single, small populations; and the site itself is only a fragment of what was once a much more extensive moor.
There is a need to move from preservation of a landscape fragment and begin piecing together a more extensive area, allowing key species to expand beyond their existing "ghettos", creating an inspirational reserve and a demonstration "hub" for culm grassland restoration in Cornwall. The project would look to acquire and restore 16 hectares of land adjacent to Greena Moor, in order to create a more long-lasting legacy for this important natural habitat in North Cornwall.
