special interest group: DDM
Defence Deer Management (DDM) is a voluntary organisation of serving military, MOD civil servants and, where necessary, retired personnel who provide a deer management service on behalf of the MOD.
DDM is a Special Interest Group, rather than a regional branch, of the Society.
A joint campaign is underway to inform members of the public about the need to give both pregnant or nursing deer and their young plenty of space when out enjoying the countryside.
Over the coming weeks, from mid-May to July, people may discover newly-born deer hidden in the grass or undergrowth and might mistakenly assume that they have been abandoned Please do not touch, disturb or move them as usually their mothers will not be far away.
The new Spring edition of our taster members’ Deer magazine Digital Deer is out now. Packed with deer news, articles and features.
The risk of acquiring a tick bite increases during springtime, with peak times from April to June, meaning there is no better time to refresh your precautions and help spread the word on being tick aware.
The following guidance from the UK HAS can be used to reduce the chance of acquiring a tick bite.
