Cover of Wood Wise Summer 2012 - protected species

This edition of Wood Wise examines the role of legal protection in the conservation of some of our most vulnerable woodland species.

These include the red squirrel, stag beetle, Scottish wildcat, all bat species and great crested newt.

The report outlines what the legal protection provides, how it is being implemented and the way it shapes our woodland management.
