"For me the GWCT is the outstanding environmental organisation. It does not shrink from saying what its own true scientific evidence shows, even if it might not always be convenient."
Sir Jim Paice, Minister of State at DEFRA (2010-12)
"The GWCT’s research on wildlife management helps informed decisions about land management."
Peter Nixon, Director of Conservation, National Trust
"The Trust’s unfailing pursuit of scientific integrity, together with its ability to communicate, has delivered lasting benefits for our countryside."
Richard Ali, Chief Executive, British Association for Shooting and Conservation
Testimonials from members
"Belonging to an organisation that is so dedicated to preserving the countryside makes me proud to be doing my bit. The perks that come with it are just the icing on the cake."
"My GWCT membership is worth every penny. The Trust benefit from my contribution and I get to attend some fantastic events."
"Before I was a member I attended an evening at a pub in Knutsford at a GWCT talk on the General Licensing fiasco at the time. Also spoke about other things on the night. I was that impressed with the GWCT and the scientific research that they carry out. I went straight home and joined. Every shooting man should be a member!"
"The membership is worth every penny for the work the GWCT do at the Allerton Project alone."
"Initially I supported the GWCT as it scientifically provided best practice for the rural environment. Having got to know the organisation better two other significant branches have become evident. Very wide ranging rural research from water voles and woodcock to soil run off and headland strips. Active political lobbying defending the rural way of life that is under increasing threat from ignorance."
Testimonials from people who have attended our courses
"All in all, it was a very enjoyable day and a great introduction to game management and the associated benefits."
"My son thoroughly enjoyed the young shooters day and was equipped with skills and knowledge about the countryside that he will never forget."
"I greatly enjoyed the Part-time keepers course and I learnt a number of useful things. The advice was excellent, clear to understand and applicable to many shoots."
