Raising the biodiversity gain

Since the launch of our Campaign for Game last summer, which challenged shoots to demonstrate that they were delivering biodiversity benefits, several shoots have stepped up to the plate and commissioned the Advisory Service to undertake a Biodiversity Assessment. The aims of these surveys are to:
  • Highlight areas where game management is already having a positive effect.
  • Identify any potential negative impacts of game management activities and find a workable solution to them.
  • To explore areas where there is potential for further biodiversity gain.
Our approach to measuring the environmental sustainability of pheasant shoots has now been adopted by Marks & Spencers which has commissioned our Advisory Service to work with its game suppliers.
