About Conservation

The conservation team helps create a guaranteed future for responsible shooting by providing members with advice on land and species management, gathering evidence to prove that shooting is vital for conservation and building strong links with conservation organisations and the UK governments to effectively promote shooting. And that is why you should join BASC today.

Through good conservation we can all work to ensure plentiful quarry species while benefiting the wider environment. Responsible 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 environmental, economic and social benefit to the UK.
