Mosses are highly significant in combatting the impacts of the climate emergency. They protect from extreme weathers, absorb air pollutants and are the first plant to grow on land damaged by wildfires. They stabilise the soil and create the environment for microbes, bacteria and fungi to reconstitute the habitat for larger plants to grow back. Mosses show us that tiny actions make a big difference. When we work together we can bring abundance back to abandoned places.
