As towns and cities expand, public policy and projects (e.g. the Forestry Commission’s ‘Woodlands in and Around Towns’) are also increasing deer habitat. Interactions between people and deer are on the increase, but popular deer management methods are difficult to practice and less popular in urban communities. Forest Research engaged directly with local communities to document these interactions and discover people’s preferences for management strategies.

The research team developed a decision support system to help stakeholders develop this new mode of deer management for urban and peri-urban environments.
The project was funded by the Deer Commission Scotland through the Scottish Government.
