Wild Boar Survey Scheme (WBSS)

We are pleased to announce; the UK Wild Boar Trust (UKWBT) have set up the first independent, on-going UK Wild Boar Survey Scheme (WBSS), and we want to invite everyone, especially nature lovers and other wildlife conservation groups, to be involved across the UK.

WBSS takes place at many locations across the UK each year; we will work with the Forestry Commission, in that area, and discuss our summary findings to help aid management of this amazing animal.

WBSS will be coordinated, and results securely compiled, by the UKWBT. We are a national wildlife non-profit group dedicated to the education and conservation of Wild Boar.

Many people are sending in reports to UKWBT which indicate that Wild Boar are spreading across the UK and the aim of WBSS is to help us find out whether this is the case.

WBSS will aim to carry out several survey visits to search for Wild Boar and/or Wild Boar field signs. This involves visiting suitable habitats on foot and using simple techniques to look for Wild Boar which will cause no damage to the land. Our aim is to use the results to benefit nature conservation across all species.
