Forest and Wildlife Crime - pine marten

Forest and Wildlife Crime – Awareness, Prevention & Enforcement - 9 October 2019

Combatting crime and promoting best practice in woodland management requires Scotland's agencies, land managers and NGOs to work together. This Sharing Good Practice event will address common issues, identify resolutions and joint working approaches, and promote closer working relationships.


The event aims to promote understanding of the law for those engaged in work in woodland areas, and encourage best practice in relation to protected species. Participants will be able to recognise crime in relation to woodland areas and forestry operations and how to respond to incidents; and will discuss some of the challenges involved to help identify resolutions, new approaches and closer working relationships. The ultimate aim is to encourage sustainable management to reduce both poor practice and criminal impacts upon protected species and woodland areas.


This Sharing Good Practice event is run by Scottish Natural Heritage, in partnership with Scottish Forestry, the UK National Wildlife Crime Unit and the Chartered Institute of Ecology & Environmental Management.


Who is the event for?

This event is for those working in forest management in the public, private and third sectors, as well as wildlife crime officers and those working in wildlife management.
