  • Shooting, as shown by BASC’s Green Shoots programme, is central to landscape scale conservation.
  • As shown by the Value of Shooting report, shooting is of major economic, environmental and social benefit to the UK.

BASC and Natural England partnership agreement

BASC has recently signed a partnership agreement with Natural England. This new agreement recognises the importance of shooting’s conservation contribution to the English Countryside.

The agreement has an action plan which sets out a formula for joint working to achieve common aims. This covers matters of importance to shooting and to conservationists such as delivery of the Government’s 25 year environmental plan, wild deer management, wildfowling consents and shoot guidance. A particular emphasis will be on how BASC’s Green Shoots programme can be further developed.
