The GWCT has re­ceived a pres­ti­gious Euro­pean award, recog­nis­ing its work in wildlife man­age­ment and con­ser­va­tion.

The Jan Van Haaften IUGB (In­ter­na­tional Union of Game Bi­ol­o­gists) Award for Wildlife Man­age­ment in Europe was pre­sented to mem­bers of the GWCT last month.

Dr Ewald, head of geo­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion sys­tems at the GWCT, said: “When [it was] an­nounced that the Trust’s re­search team were the re­cip­i­ents of the award for 2017, all of those present were de­lighted. Dr Le­cocq, rep­re­sent­ing the judg­ing panel, cited the in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion of the Trust’s re­search, the sus­tained record of that re­search and the di­rect value of that re­search in man­ag­ing and con­serv­ing game and wildlife.”
