Welcome to the Bog Day website!

International Bog Day is celebrated around the world on the fourth Sunday in July – this falls on 28th July in 2019. This Bog Day_Logo red&lime_rgbannual event has been designed to celebrate the beauty of bogs and to help make people more aware of peatlands, the services they provide for free, and the threats they face. Find out more about what makes bogs so special in our film The Day We Found the Bog below.

We’ll have plenty of new resources coming soon. If you have any suggestions, events or ideas please email info@iucn.org.uk.

This site is managed by the IUCN UK Peatland Programme and brings you content from partners and colleagues around the world working to conserve, restore and enhance our amazing and beautiful bogs.

You can find out about Bog Day events, download Bog Day branding and activities, and find out what bogs are and why they are special. We’ll be Tweeting in the runup and on the day from @IUCNPeat with #BogDay.

If there’s a topic you’d like to know more about, get in touch or send us a Tweet and we’ll answer your questions!
