Heather Moorland Management

We live in an era in which there is now a growing recognition that 'wise use', rather than 'protectionism', is a more constructive long term conservation policy.
Well managed grouse moors are clearly involved in activities that benefit the maintenance of this internationally important habitat and its unique diversity of moorland species. Grouse moors also benefit the local economy through increasing seasonal employment and tourism income associated with grouse shooting.
The resources include a PowerPoint presentation, videos, teaching notes and worksheets, lesson plans and pupil workbooks.
