13th January 2020 – Great North Museum, Hancock, Newcastle University – A one-day symposium to pool knowledge and gather current information on the species.
Muntjac deer range is increasing following their 20th-century introduction in the southeast of England. They have steadily spread with occasional reports now of sightings to the north in Cumbria, County Durham, and Northumberland. Scottish policy is clear, to be free of muntjac deer.
Led by NE England Branch BDS supported by the Woodland Trust and other interested organisations, the symposium will be addressed by muntjac specialists and researchers. The day will be open to all and the findings expected to feed into a review of the national strategy for muntjac deer by the Non-Native Species Secretariat (NNSS).
