Wood Wise: protected species

The Woodland Trust’s latest Wood Wise issue looks at woodland management for protected species. There are a range of case studies from different organisations to show best practice and share experiences.

The first case study looks at the restoration of our Bovey Valley Woods, a plantation on ancient woodland site, and research into the Barbastelle bats that live in them. All UK bats are European Protected Species. We have also focused on pond management for great crested newts in several of our woods.

There is a piece on work to protect and enhance the dormouse population at the National Trust’s Stourhead Estate. And another on red squirrel conservation on Anglesey. Efforts to benefit the dwindling populations of Scottish wildcats has a focus, and finally work by the People’s Trust for Endangered Species to support the threatened stag beetle.

Wood Wise issues can be viewed online via this link. If you would like a pdf version please email your request to Conservation@woodlandtrust.org.uk
