BASC’s lobbying, policy development and advisory work is guided by the provision of science-based research and technical support. Projects may be conducted in-house, through specialist contractors, or in conjunction with other organisations. BASC’s Science department have special expertise in policy briefings, white papers, ballistics research, monitoring shooting, dealing with issues connected with migratory birds, and the environmental impacts of shooting. BASC’s science contributes to scientific, political and public acceptance of shooting and the sustainable management of quarry populations. Science provides the basis for high standards in shooting and helps prevent or resolve conflicts between sporting and other interests. It also helps improve BASC membership services and benefits.
