Help me understand please! Am I right to suggest that Chinese water deer and Muntjac are on the list to be eradicated from the UK if possible, the Woodland Trust and Forestry commission would like to see them gone as they are not native species, so why do the BDS make it look like they are protecting them for future generations on their Chinese water deer leaflet:
As the leading wild deer organisation in the UK, the British Deer Society works to enable the deer of the United Kingdom to exist and flourish in today’s environment ensuring their future is secure for generations to come.
There are six species of deer living freely in the British countryside. Each species has specific characteristics which make it well-suited for the variety of habitats found across the country and highly adaptable to environmental changes. A mixture of native and introduced species, they make a valuable contribution to Britain’s biodiversity and are some of our most engaging British mammals.
So the question is do we what them or not?.
