173. Hen Harriers V Red Grouse: A Moorland Management Conflict

Description

Heather moorlands cover large areas of the UKs uplands but, globally, they are rare. In terms of conservation, they are important bird habitats. This Environmental Studies Factsheet focuses on the conflict between landowners who manage their heather moors for grouse shooting and conservationists who argue that gamekeepers on such moors are responsible for almost wiping out the hen harriers, large birds of prey that feed on grouse.

This Factsheet explains Moorland management, and also includes practice exam questions on the topic.
