Our Conservation Grazing project with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust in the Forest of Dean have a flock of Hebridean sheep and 10 Exmoor ponies which graze local nature reserves. They will shortly be joined by 6 Highland cattle.
With more animals, we need to increase the number of voluntary stock checkers and will be running a training session soon. Stock checkers are free to check the livestock whenever they wish at which ever site or sites suits them best. There are no rotas or fixed duties just a request to check when you can and let us know what you find.
You might be surprised what you find!
From creating habitats for our wildlife or improving our waterways, to recording oral histories or finding old photos, there’s always something going on to get involved in!
