At the forefront of best practice game and wildlife management for over 90 years

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust conducts scientific research into Britain’s game and wildlife management and the effects of farming and other land management practices on the environment

Through our research, the GWCT has demonstrated that good management of our natural environment can lead to tangible knock-on benefits for a wide range of wildlife. From declining wading birds, like the lapwing and curlew, that benefit from the management of our upland estates, to improved species diversity in our lowlands as a result of habitat creation for pheasant and partridge releases, game management can deliver a net gain for biodiversity.

Our Advisory team in Scotland plays an important role in disseminating this applied practical research to the managers of the countryside through training courses, events, and face-to-face visits.

Having this direct link to applied research means that our expert Advisors have been at the forefront of promoting best practice game and wildlife management as a force for nature conservation and environmental improvement on farmland, woodland, moorland and wetland for over 80 years. 

All of our Advisors are specialists in their respective fields and are passionate about producing a countryside that is rich in game and wildlife. Whatever your requirements, we are here to support you!
