Managing deer for climate and nature consultation 2024

Read some key points from Scottish Environment Link Deer Group and the John Muir Trust - providing guidance to responding to the latest Scottish Government deer management consultation.

As a member of the Scottish Environment Link Deer Group, the John Muir Trust welcomes the Scottish Government’s latest deer management legislation consultation and strongly urges our Members and supporters to respond before it closes on 29 March 2024.

The more people who support the changes proposed, the more likely they are to be implemented and the better are the prospects for healthy ecosystems and communities.

The consultation is relatively brief, clear and requires answering straightforward questions – so shouldn’t take too long to complete.
