Experts braced for online game management conference

Gamekeepers are being urged to keep up to date with the latest developments by signing up this year’s annual GAME conference run by the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).

Run online via Zoom on Thursday 2 December, the information-packed event will feature the latest research and advice relevant to lowland game shooting, as well as aiming to promote good practice in the game and wildlife management sector. The talks will be delivered by a wide variety of sector experts giving delegates the opportunity to meet and discuss topical subjects highly relevant to the future of shooting.

The full programme includes a series of talks on many of the issues facing the game management community, from best practice game releasing to new initiatives such as Aim To Sustain.

Attendees will be treated to talks from leading GWCT experts, plus guest speakers including Dominic Boulton of the Game Farmers’ Association, Liam Stokes of British Game Assurance, and Jeremy Marsh from Elanco.

Amongst the GWCT staff sharing their latest findings will be Matt Goodall, who explains the role of a community keeper, Dr Roger Draycott on the development of shoot cluster and Mike Short who, along with Austin Weldon of Forestry England, will be discussing curlew conservation in the New Forest.

Ahead of the event, GWCT advisor Matt Goodall said: “We’re urging all shoot managers and gamekeepers to book their place and stay up to date with the challenges and opportunities facing game shoots today. We’ve got a great mix of GWCT and external speakers who’ll be covering topical issues like ensuring your pens are in good condition and managing disease risk in your released gamebirds.”

The event runs from 9.00am to 3.30pm, with tickets priced at just £25. offering affordable access to some of the leading voices in their field. You can book today by visiting www.gwct.org.uk/game2021.
