#134 Alex Rodgers: Upland management & conservation in Northern Ireland

I speak with the only full-time gamekeeper in Northern Ireland, Alex Rodgers, about an ambitious project to restore a moorland to its historic, thriving state. Recent winners of the gold Purdey Award for conservation, Alex works for the Irish Grouse Conservation Trust, involved in an array of research with collaborating NGOs and scientists to determine the long term conservation of these upland areas in a way which protects the eco-system, and allows wildlife to thrive alongside humans.
