The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust conducts scientific research into Britain’s game and wildlife management and the effects of farming and other land management practices on the environment.
The Advisory team plays an important role in disseminating this applied practical research to the managers of the countryside via a series of events and visits held throughout the country, including training courses and face-to-face visits.
These events cover a broad range of topics giving farmers, gamekeepers and other practitioners in the land management sector the specialist advice and confidence required to make the right decisions every day. Topics include:
- Best practice predation control techniques
- Sustainable management of released pheasants
- Grey partridge conservation
- Identifying farmland birds
- Managing woodland for butterflies, game and other wildlife
- The GWCT shoot biodiversity assessment service
