Conservation Fact File 5 - Predator and Pest Control

Conservation Fact File 5 - Predator and Pest Control

Another video in the Conservation Fact file series. This time we cover predation control.

There are many species that are endangered and thus need to be protected from predation. Gamekeepers create Predator and Pest Control Management Plans which determine how, under current legislation, the range of avian and mammalian predators can be prevented from preying on these vulnerable species.

Aimed at Key stage  3,4 & 5, 11-18 year old children the video is accompanied by classroom worksheets to help reinforce the learning and ignite the interest of students in the ways in which game and conservation managers keep the balance in our countryside.
