Over the last 5 years the British Deer Society has supported the Arts & Humanities Research Council funded ‘Fallow Deer Project’, which has been examining how, when and why the European fallow deer (Dama dama) spread around the world from its native homeland in the Mediterranean. The findings of this project have overturned our understanding of the natural and cultural history of the species, revealing how fallow deer transformed landscapes and human lives everywhere they were taken. As part of the project, the team have produced a 30-minute documentary, filmed by wildlife photographer Luke Saddler, that tells some of the fascinating stories of this beautiful and enigmatic deer species. https://youtu.be/6aagY-9wdtk

The British Deer Society (BDS) has published a comprehensive 33-page report on aspects of the possible reintroduction of the Eurasian lynx in Great Britain. The report will inform any responses the BDS may make during the consultation phase of any future applications to release lynx into the wild. It is also hoped that the report will be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal by the authors Jos Milner and Justin Irvine.
The British Deer Society (BDS) has unveiled its brand new state-of-the-art website, following months of development and design work behind the scenes.
