Scottish Gamekeepers’ Association makes lofty claims about their role in golden eagle conservation

8 July 2013

The Scottish Gamekeepers’ Association (SGA) claims that golden eagles are doing well on grouse moors in East and Central Scotland and say that there at least 55 active golden eagle nests on these keeper-managed moorlands. Critics have strongly disputed their claim that golden eagles are doing well in this region. We published a letter in the Scotsman to announce a forthcoming analysis of SRSG nest data to compare the figures with those claimed by the SGA. The results will be published on this website.
