UPPER VALLEY MOORLAND FIRES GROUP
Uncontrolled grass moorland fires are a crime - Help stamp them out!
PLEASE TAKE NOTE
Uncontrolled grass moorland fire are NOT a form of moorland management, It is ARSON and offenders will be prosecuted
The uncontrolled burning of grass moor is NOT a victimless crime.
The moors are being managed with public money to return them into better condition to help retain water. This helps prevent flooding in the Valleys.
Uncontrolled burning on grass moors kills nesting wild birds and animals, destroys important and rare plants, causes the moors to erode and wash material into rivers causing them to silt up and provides a growing medium for plants that then choke our rivers!
THIS IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF FLOODING
Be a friend of the Moors to protect them for future generations.
