Fair Game Outreach
In April 2012, members of the Dama International Team spent time at a local school, explaining the history of fallow deer and their ancient management but also encouraging the children to think about the impact of this introduced species on the present day landscape and environment.
Most of the children had never considered venison as a source of food but we soon changed their opinions, getting the pupils to help with the 'unmaking' of a deer, following medieval hunting texts. With help from 'celebreity' chef, Valentine Warner, the children made their parents a delicious venison supper. The whole school had venison on the lunch menu the next day. We have since run similar session at the school and are beginning to other schools and institutions. See out diary for forthcoming events or get in contact to discuss the possibility of us running a Fair Game session for you.
