We aim for a thriving countryside rich in game and other wildlife


What do we do?

  • We use science to promote game and wildlife management as an essential part of nature conservation.
  • We develop scientifically researched game and wildlife management techniques.
  • We promote our work to conservationists, including farmers and landowners and offer an on-site advisory service on all aspects of game and wildlife management, so that Britain’s countryside and its wildlife are enhanced for the public benefit.
  • We influence government policy with sound science that creates progressive and effective policies.
  • We support best practice for field sports that contribute to improving the biodiversity of the countryside.


What do we believe?

  • Scientific research should underpin sustainable conservation practice.
  • Game and wildlife management is the foundation of good conservation.
  • Field sports (in particular shooting and fishing) can contribute substantially to the conservation of landscape, habitat and wildlife.
  • Humane and targeted predator control is an essential part of effective game and wildlife conservation.
