Live now: Important new online farmer and hunter survey

Take your chance of helping shape the future of Agri-Environmental Schemes (AES)

  • AES for the Dutch is ‘het stelsel voor Agrarisch Natuur- en Landschapsbeheer (ANLb)’
  • for the Flemish it is ‘het instrument van beheersovereenkomsten’
  • for the Germans it is called ‘Agrarumweltmassnahmen für Tiere der Agrarlandschaft’
  • the Danish do not have an AES, but please still take part if you are a Danish farmer or hunter! Your survey reflects the state of play in Denmark.

The Interreg North Sea Region PARTRIDGE project is running a trans-national online farmers’, land manager’s and hunter’s survey to better understand attitudes towards AES. The key aim is to use the results of this survey to inform and influence future AES across our six partner countries – England, Scotland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands.
To help us achieve our target of 1000 responses per country please TAKE OUR SURVEY NOW, by clicking on your countries’ FLAG. The view of anyone who farms or hunts on their own land and would be able to have an AES if they were available is of interest, whether you already are in an environmental scheme or not!

For example:

  • If you are not in a Scheme already, we would like to hear why you are not.
  • If you are already in a Scheme, we would like to know how the Scheme could be improved.


The survey takes approximately 15 minutes and is based mostly on multiple-choice answers.
At the end you can register for a free raffle to win one of three exciting PARTRIDGE prizes.

Establishment of a new PARTRIDGE beetle bank




PARTRIDGE is a project co-funded by the Interreg North Sea Region Programme which show-cases how new and improved management solutions can improve biodiversity and ecosystem services by up to 30% by 2023 at 10 demonstration sites across the region.

PARTRIDGE (Protecting the Area’s Resources Through Researched Innovative Demonstration of Good Examples), is one of 11 projects which were approved in 2016 by the Interreg North Sea Region. In 2019, the project was awarded an extension until 2023. The programme aims to make the region more innovative, resilient and sustainable.





PARTRIDGE Project Enamel Pins

In 2020 PARTRIDGE produced an exclusive enamel flying partridge pins to help support our project.  These are now almost sold out. All funds produced from this fundraiser go towards the conservation of grey partridges and help fight the loss of our wildlife on arable farmland.  Last few pins can be purchased HERE
