The University of Northampton was commissioned by the Uplands Partnership to produce a detailed report reviewing the evidence on whether driven grouse shooting was sustainable.
The aim of the report is to present the current evidence-based knowledge relating to the economic, ecological and social sustainability of driven grouse shooting (DGS). The report is intended to enable policy makers, those involved in DGS, and other stakeholders to consider all aspects of sustainability before making policy or management decisions about DGS. Subsequent to this initial, the full report will be updated on a regular basis. It will be a ‘living document’ continually available as a resource for policy makers and other interested parties.
