Grouse moors also benefit the local economy through increasing seasonal employment and tourism income associated with grouse shooting.
The resources include a PowerPoint presentation (updated Dec 2020 to reflect changes in legislation), videos, teaching notes and worksheets, lesson plans and pupil workbooks.
