Thrill of the Hill – Aiming at Success

Posted in

Farmers are custodians of the landscape in Scotland, and the farmed environment accounts for roughly 75% of all land in the country, but farmers need not take all that responsibility themselves. Agriculture adjacent, the game bird sector has a huge role to play in supporting the farmed upland environment and in this episode, Ross Macleod, Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust lays that all out, discussing the interplay between farming and the upland sectors, how we can work collaboratively, the role of gamekeeping, predator control and Muirburn, and crucially, the need for data driven decision making to deal effectively with biodiversity decline and climate change.

Hosted by Alexander Pirie, Edited by Malcolm MacDonald, Produced by Kerry Hammond, Executive Producer Kerry Hammond, in association with The Scottish Government.
