We value research as a key component of our work, because research helps us to develop our understanding and knowledge, so that we can then strive for best practice.
Some research topics of interest to us include:
- Research to see if our work is beneficial to local biodiversity or otherwise
- Research into potential social and health benefits gained by people participating in Wild Work projects
- Research to find solutions for invasive species control in community settings
- Research on recreation topics such as“Dogs in the Outdoors”
