The Lowland Deer Management project contributes to the Scottish Biodiversity Strategy Route Map action to assess the mechanisms for delivering sustainable deer management in the lowland Scotland. Phase 2 of the project builds on work done to identify what data is available to support deer management within the project area (Research Report 1069). This study engaged with stakeholders to understand how, where and why practical deer management is carried out within the project area with the aim of gaining a better understanding of current models of lowland deer management and the extent to which they are delivering the public interest.
