Join our Walk for Wildlife on Haworth Moor
The Wuthering Moors at Haworth form one of our region’s most iconic beauty spots, but Yorkshire Water has put them in jeopardy by leasing them for grouse shooting. Wildlife biodiversity is declining and native species – including foxes, stoats, weasels and corvids – are being trapped and shot to preserve red grouse for the guns. Rare peatland habitat is also being degraded through burning and the construction of shooting butts.
Saturday 8 December falls on the last weekend of the grouse shooting season. We will hold a respectful walk for the moors’ wildlife, call on Yorkshire Water to commit to ending its grouse shooting leases and have a festive-themed ramble whilst we’re at it. Please bring cakes, mince pies, jumpers, scarves, homemade banners, your friends and family.
