Students learning about wildlife research

First published in News

WILDLIFE researchers from the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust in Fordingbridge are introducing young students from local schools to the fascinating world of wildlife research.

The trust’s New Forest Education Roadshow aims to introduce students in years 7 and 8 to the ecology of the New Forest, particularly heathland management techniques.

This is a community engagement initiative, which forms part of a scientific research project being carried out by the trust, in conjunction with the Natural History Museum.

The project aims to compare the impact of managed burning and vegetation cutting on biodiversity of the New Forest.

It is funded by the New Forest National Park Authority’s Sustainable Development Fund in partnership with the Verderers and the National Trust.
