Tonight at very short notice I was asked to attend and contribute towards a planned talk by the Forestry Commission at Chepstow Leisure Centre.
The talk was to be dedicated to the wild boar in the Forest of Dean, but sadly the Forestry Commission had to pull out.
There were between 80 and 100 people in attendance and I am pleased to say it went very well. I tried to be as informative as possible and every question was answered to the best of my knowledge. The round of applause at the end was just tremendous.
We were in full support of the Forestry Commissions reasons for pulling out and we also made it quite clear that we will be fully supportive of their management plan for the wild boar, when it is put into place.
If anyone reading this attended the talk, thank you for coming and supporting your wildlife. I hope you enjoyed the photos and video.
Also a big thank you to Gwent Wildlife Trust.
