NATURALIST and TV presenter Chris Packham is set to host a conference on grouse moor reform in Scotland next month.

The popular wildlife expert will lead the day as REVIVE’s national conference is held in Perth, encouraging delegates to discuss issues surrounding intensive grouse moor management and land reform.

The one-day event, titled People, Wildlife & Environment, will also see speakers include journalist Lesley Riddoch, land reform campaigner Andy Wightman, Green MSP Mark Ruskell and RSPB Scotland’s Duncan Orr-Ewing.

Max Wiszniewski, campaign manager for REVIVE – a coalition of groups seeking grouse moor reform including Common Weal and Friends of the Earth Scotland – said the movement had been working to “end the circle of destruction surrounding grouse moors” since 2018.

“By bringing together people from different disciplines who all care about Scotland’s land and how it is used we have made overwhelming progress towards a vision for better land use alternatives,” he said.

“It is testament to this progress that we have the support of Chris Packham who, despite relentless criticism for his stance on grouse shooting, is willing to share his strongly held views, along with a host of high profile speakers as we take land reform, wildlife, biodiversity and crucially, environmental protection on Scottish moors to the next level.”

The conference takes place on Sunday, November 14, at Perth Concert Hall. Booking information can be found here.
