Rangers on Cannock Chase are teaming up with the British Deer Society to help raise awareness of deer with an Awareness Day will being held at the Cannock Chase Visitor Centre this Sunday, between 10.30am and 3pm.

On display will be a ranger truck showing how road traffic accidents involving deer are managed, plus information on the latest numbers of deer from a recent survey. Information will be available about all six species of deer that are found in the UK, including information on where to find them and their ecology, and why it’s a bad idea to feed them.

There will also be activities for children, including a colouring competition with a cuddly deer on offer as a prize.
