One Day Meeting - 18th April 2008

Please note: This event has now passed.

Bournemouth University and The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust have collaborated to provide a varied and topical programme of talks on agriculture and biodiversity. Delegates will hear from ecologists, conservation managers and farmers in a series of short talks. Topics include agri-environment schemes, biomass crops, carbon management, organic farming, and conservation of plants and wildlife in the terrestrial and freshwater habitats of the Wessex landscape. There will also be a chaired discussion and breaks to give people time to make and renew contacts.

A programme is available here. You can also read a selection of abstracts here.

The meeting will bring conservation practitioners and researchers together in Wessex with a view to collaborative projects and information dissemination. In 2005, the WCF meeting was very well attended, with a broad spectrum of 100 delegates from NGOs, universities and government bodies.

The event will take place at The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust in Fordingbridge and there is no charge to attend this meeting; however spaces are limited to 100. Sandwiches can be ordered at registration (before 10am) or please feel free to bring your own.
