The environmental benefits of moorland management explained in less than 2mins

Updated: Aug 18





Today the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report into climate change and the devastating impact wildfires are having globally.


One of the most effective ways to prevent these environmental catastrophes occuring in the UK is through controlled burning of surface vegetation - as has been practiced by local communities for thousands of years.


And yet, Ruth Tingay, Mark Avery and Chris Packham want this tool for firefighting banned.

In today's video trailer for the University of Northampton's upcoming documentary 'Is Grouse Shooting Sustainable', which is being released on Thursday, we look at the environmental benefits of moorland management and controlled burning.


Now more than ever we need people to recognise and understand the importance of controlled burning to prevent wildfires.


This short video trailer teaser by the University of Northampton outlines the benefits brought by moorland management.
