GAP around the UK

Information about GAP's wider network around the UK...

WalesPONT logo

From the outset GAP has emphasised the importance of regional developments to co-ordinate grazing land and livestock. The past few years have seen a number of exciting developments. In Wales PONT (Pori Natur a Threftadaeth) was initiated in 2005 and now employs a co-ordinator covering Wales. For more information on the work of PONT please click here.

Northern Ireland

2006 saw the formation of GAPNI in Northern Ireland with the employment of two part-time co-ordinators at Ulster Wildlife Trust. This led to the development of a steering group and the production of a GAPNI Development Plan.


2007 saw the biennial FACT/GAP Conference taking in place in Stirling in Scotland, including a workshop on supporting conservation grazing in Scotland. There are several very interesting conservation grazing projects currently underway in Scotland. Visit the Conservation Grazing Map tool for more information about these projects.
