The Deer Initiative

About us

Our vision

The overarching vision of the Deer Initiative Partnership is:

the achievement and maintenance of a sustainable and healthy population of wild deer in England and Wales.

Our aim is to ensure the delivery of the above and in doing so we will pursue three main outcomes:

  • Contribute to the conservation and sustainable management of woodlands and other habitats; in particular, the achievement of favourable conservation status of protected areas such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest
  • Halt the growth of, and subsequently reduce, the number and seriousness of deer-vehicle collisions on our roads
  • Build the capability to react effectively to contain and control emerging zoonoses (i.e. diseases transmissible to humans) and other animal health issues relating to deer
