The collection aims to raise awareness of such land managers, whose efforts and achievements often go unheard. It features successful efforts to protect some of the UK’s most endangered and spectacular species including mountain hare, curlew, lapwing, golden eagle, merlin, black grouse, ring ouzel and many more.
The private land managers behind these projects see themselves as practical conservationists who care passionately about the wildlife and habitats they look after. They demonstrate how, free to use their expertise in decision making and with expert advice and the right kind of financial support, they are ideally placed to deliver a range of public goods from wildfire prevention to flood mitigation.

To celebrate the launch of Moorland Conservationists, we have put together a short film with footage kindly shared with us by members of the Northern Pennines Regional Moorland Group, all taken in the region by gamekeepers this spring. The clips beautifully illustrate how important grouse management is to the survival of some of our most endangered and spectacular wildlife.
