COLLABORATIVE MANAGEMENT OF WILD DEER IN ENGLAND

Wild deer are having a growing negative impact on woodlands and we want to work with landowners, land managers and other partners to reduce these impacts, particularly in priority areas.

The work comprises four elements:

1. Identification of priority areas
2. Collaborative working
3. Resources
4. Evidence

The estimated total value of the contract is £200,000 in the first year and we envisage a four year term, subject to annual break points.

If successful this will attract additional funding.
