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.
This package includes
an extensive powerpoint presentation covering all aspects of the Heather Moorland and its management. It focuses on the crucial role of the gamekeeper in sound conservation based on everyday practice.
