HUDDERSFIELD students are involved in an environmental project on the moors.
Honley High School is taking part in an exercise called the Moorlands as Indicators of Climate Change Initiative.
It is being run by the Peak District National Park’s learning team at Losehill Hall and students will conduct research on the Peak District and the Pennine moors.
Groups of 13-18 year olds drawn from 11 schools around the national park are investigating the impact of climate change and the effects of human activities on the sensitive moorland environment.
They will measure peat depth, the water table and vegetation and wildlife. The data will help research by the Moors for the Future Partnership and the University of Manchester.
