Wild Deer Management in Wales
Our strategy for deer was published in February 2011. It sets out our aims and objectives for the sustainable management of deer in Wales.
The strategy supports our vision that "Wales benefits from its wild deer population in balance with the natural, social and economic environment." The strategy recognises that although an expanding deer population would make it more difficult to deliver many of the objectives in the Woodlands for Wales strategy and objectives for agriculture and the natural environment, we should uphold the value of wild deer as part of our natural heritage. We should also ensure that where active management is required, it is sustainable as well as safe, humane and effective.
The factors that have driven the need for developing a strategy are:
- deer and their impacts in Wales
- our international commitments to biodiversity
- our policies and priorities including those relating to the environment, biodiversity and agriculture
- Woodlands for Wales: Our Strategy for Woodlands and Trees.
The Wild deer management in Wales Action Plan 2011 -2016 was published in December 2011 and sets out what needs to happen over the next five years to deliver the aims of the strategy.
