Grazing Case Studies and UK Grazing Map

Welcome to the GAP grazing map, providing information and case studies on a wide range of conservation grazing schemes around the British Isles. Please click on the Visual Map Tool link on this page to access the map and explore the grazing scheme information in our database. Alternatively, you can access a text-based version of the map by clicking the Text Map Tool link instead.

Local Grazing Schemes are schemes that achieve conservation through local engagement and partnership working.  LGSs are coloured RED on the map. Some are expanded with more detailed case studies, these can be identified by the BLUE dots.


However, there are of course a variety of other conservation grazing systems in place to meet other needs.

So to paint a representative picture of conservation grazing in the UK, we include examples of conservation grazing from across the conservation grazing spectrum; from individual farms meeting nature conservation objectives through grazing to large-scale extensive grazing conservation projects using free-ranging livestock. These sites are represented by YELLOW coloured dots on the Visual Map Tool.
