About This Project
Increased recreational activity can lead to disturbance of wildlife, like red deer, with environment (direct, indirect), welfare, and economic consequences. My research will quantify red deer responses to hillwalker activity by recording distribution, behaviour, and assessing population trends. I aim to collar deer to gain fine-scale information on individuals, support existing datasets, provide data unique to this region and species, and to inform conservation management decisions.
