A new wildfowling officer has been appointed by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). Mark Greenhough, who will take up his post in August, is currently BASC's Cheshire biodiversity project officer.
Mark first became interested in wildfowling whilst undertaking voluntary conservation work on the North Kent Marshes, while studying for an MSc in Environmental Science at the University of Kent. He joined the Kent Wildfowling and Conservation Association in the late 1990's and remained an active member until 2005 when he moved to Cheshire.
Mark is now a full member of the Dee Wildfowling and Wetlands Management Club and is also an associate member of the Morecambe Bay Wildfowling Association.
Mark Greenhough said: "There is no other type of shooting that comes close to wildfowling. Nothing evokes the sense of passion and excitement that wildfowling does. I am extremely pleased and honoured to be offered the role of Wildfowling Officer. I see the coming months as an opportunity to begin some key projects as well as forming closer and more fruitful relationships with our affiliated clubs."
