Restoration grazing of chalk grasslands

Restoration grazing of chalk grasslands
Restoration grazing of chalk grasslands – Online talk by Sean Grufferty at Downlands Partnership

Book here

The talk will focus on the work Sean manages for the Downlands Partnership Grazing team, that consists of two staff, 200 sheep, 12 cattle and 10 goats. They carry out grazing on 24 sites across the North Downs, with the aim of conserving and restoring Chalk Downland habitat. This is achieved by working in partnership with their stakeholders including local authorities, charities, community groups and landowners. They deliver both the grazing service in terms of animals and also helping to monitor the sites, carrying out regular visits and offering expertise on the grazing regimes that will best suit the objectives for the grassland.
