GWCT Central Exhibit

Each year the GWCT area at the Scottish Game Fair will explore a topical theme related to our work.

The theme for the GWCT’s central ringside stand this year focuses on the three-legged stool of habitat, feeding and predator control necessary for the best of game and wildlife management conservation. With demonstrations covering these essential ingredients, be sure to make the central exhibit a stop during your visit and find out how these features will underpin the future of sustainable game management.
