Background information on the DVD
In November 2002, the International Peat Society (IPS) together with the International Mire Conservation Group (IMCG) published a book, “Wise Use of Mires and Peatlands”, the aim of which is to highlight the nature of peatlands and identify problems resulting from their use.
Because of the excellent information in the Book, members of IPS decided to produce a DVD that would visualize the development of peatlands, their natural functions and present global status, the use of peat and peatlands for different purposes, as well as to introduce principles of their use based on the Wise Use publication.
The DVD includes a Documentary (19 minutes) and eight short segments detailing different peatland themes under the heading More Data (total length 45 minutes), as well as an Image Gallery and Statistics from the WUMP book. The DVD is being distributed by the Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss Association (CSPMA) in North America and the IPS in the rest of the world.
