“A must-read for anyone who wishes to see our threatened wildlife restored”
Adam Henson, Farmer, author & TV presenter
Paperback, 144 pages
Based on our best-selling book ‘The Knowledge’, Working Conservation reveals how the principles of game management are helping efforts to reverse British biodiversity decline.
Seventy percent of the UK is farmland and we will always need to grow food. We can’t rewild the whole countryside and nature reserves will not be enough to resolve the current crisis and avoid imminent local extinctions of rare species.
Sections on habitat, food provision and predation management tell how the various measures employed by gamekeepers provide the ‘three-legged stool’ of conservation and benefit a wide range of wildlife from wildflowers to insects, birds of prey to brown hares.
With the right support, it is these Working Conservationists who can achieve the widespread reversal of biodiversity loss we so urgently need. Part of the GWCT Knowledge series.
