The red deer is Britain’s largest native land mammal, but is just one of the many deer species found living in the UK countryside. This course will focus on the wild deer species of the British Isles and their role in the natural habitat. You will learn how to identify each of the different deer species as well as understanding aspects of their ecology including their preferred habitats, antler growth, tracking and indirect signs, and their history.

Geoff is a lecturer of game and wildlife management at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire and has many years of experience of teaching further and higher education. He has worked with wild and captive deer extensively in the UK and New Zealand and has particular expertise in the management of woodlands and the impacts of non-native deer species on woodland habitats.
