Directors of Cerebrus Associates Dr Heleen van de Weerd and Dr Jon Day, recently joined the Trust’s Conservation Shepherd, Agnes Kiemel, at the Trust’s Besthorpe Nature Reserve who showed them the conservation grazing sheep, also referred to as the ‘Flying Flock’ as they move from site to site grazing to improve the habitat for wildlife.

We are really passionate about animal welfare and developing policies for businesses and the government based on scientific research. Our business activities compliment the wildlife conservation work carried out by the Trust, so it wasn’t a difficult decision to show our support and become a business member.
