Quotes

"By 1952 the  Gibraltar Point reserve  was flourishing and was widely regarded nationally as a model of its kind. Schools and universities were using it for teaching and research and the number of visitors was already in the tens of thousands. It was a fitting recognition of its success that in August 1952 it became the first Local Nature Reserve in England."
Dr Mike Clarke is the RSPB's Chief Executive. He said: "England's uplands are some of our most iconic, extensive and important landscapes. Our assessment shows they could be among our most damaged too. For the benefit of wildlife, the environment and wider society there is an urgent need to restore these landscapes by blocking drains, re-vegetating bare peat and bringing an end to burning."
A spokesman said: "Natural England is currently working on revising our internal guidance following a review of the evidence on the effects of managed burning on upland peatland biodiversity, carbon and water. This revised guidance is being shared with stakeholders and we are considering the feedback we have received. Once we have taken account of these comments we will ensure that our guidance is publicly available."
