Join our rally to ban grouse shooting – Hebden Bridge
The moors around Hebden Bridge are some of Yorkshire’s most iconic beauty spots, but Yorkshire Water has put them in jeopardy. The uplands are leased out for grouse shooting, with wildlife trapped and heather burnt to increase game bird numbers. This damages biodiversity, rare peatland and contributes to flooding in the valley.
The day before the grouse shooting season commences we will hold a respectful protest in Hebden Bridge to urge Yorkshire Water to stop leasing moorland for grouse shooting.
