Doing the right thing for wildlife (our letter to the Telegraph)


It is bizarre to read the proponents of rewilding calling for the end of a practice that has shaped our countryside for centuries (Queen under pressure to abandon grouse shooting on Royal estates, 6 February). Active management not only supports this internationally significant landscape, the mixture of habitats produced by burning is also good for many moorland animals and birds – including the curlew. We need to concern ourselves with the future of these threatened species, not the past.
