Charity no.: 279968

The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is the leading UK charity conducting scientific research to enhance the British countryside for public benefit. For over 75 years we have been researching and developing game and wildlife management techniques. We provide training and advice to farmers, gamekeepers and land managers on how best to improve the biodiversity of the countryside.

  • We use science to promote game and wildlife management as an essential part of nature conservation.
  • We develop scientifically researched game and wildlife management techniques.
  • We promote our work to conservationists, including farmers and landowners, so that Britain’s countryside and its wildlife are enhanced for the public benefit.
  • We influence government policy with sound science that creates progressive and effective policies.
  • We support best practice for field sports that contribute to improving the biodiversity of the countryside.

What do we believe?

  • Scientific research should underpin sustainable conservation practice.
  • Game and wildlife management is the foundation of good conservation.
  • Field sports (in particular shooting and fishing) can contribute substantially to the conservation of landscape, habitat and wildlife.
  • Humane and targeted predator control is an essential part of effective game and wildlife conservation.
  • Good conservation goes hand-in-hand with economic land use.
