Lowland Deer Panel and Public Interest reports now available

Posted by on Apr 9, 2019 in News | Comments Off

The report of the Lowland Deer Panel to Scottish Natural Heritage has now been published and includes seven recommendations for SNH to consider. SNH will consider the report and recommendations ‘in the round’, rather than taking the Panel’s work in isolation, and will respond fully to it later this year.

The report Lowland deer management: assessing the delivery of public interests is also available. It was compiled by SRUC to better understand approaches to Lowland deer management and is an important first step to build a complete picture of how deer are managed in lowland Scotland, including vital information on deer numbers, deer impacts on agriculture and forestry, and deer-vehicle collisions. A second phase of this project is currently being taken forward.
