GWCT response to Defra review into releasing gamebirds on and around protected sites

GWCT is pleased to have helped provide scientific evidence to inform this issue, which shows that any negative impacts from game bird releasing are very localised to the release site, with positive impacts on habitats and other wildlife at both the local and landscape scale.

We look forward to working with Defra to help develop practical, workable licences in accordance with Defra’s decision in this respect, and GWCT will continue to work with shoots to help them deliver a net biodiversity gain from their game management activities.
