Registered trap users working under the General Licences were contacted by the GWCT (Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust) in March and asked to complete a questionnaire on their use of these traps. The next stage of this project is now being conducted by SASA (Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture), who are asking for volunteers to help keep simple records of their catches and to allow SASA staff to remotely monitor trap activity using trail cameras. If you are prepared to help then please contact Seonaidh Jamieson (firstname.lastname@example.org; 0131 244 8889).
Assisting with these field trials will help to ensure that General Licences remain fit-for-purpose, robust and defensible. We encourage your participation wherever possible.
