GWCT Research Conference - Book your place today

Agri-environment measures following CAP reform: can we still achieve wildlife revival?

We would like to invite you and your colleagues to the second Game & Wildlife Conservation Research Conference taking place on 13th May.


As you know, the State of Nature report made gloomy reading and the latest CAP reforms will present a new set of challenges as we attempt to achieve our 2020 conservation targets.

We are therefore holding this conference to mobilise conservationists, farmers, policy makers and all those wishing to meet future conservation targets.

We will discuss how we can inspire the continued revival of wildlife populations and share our latest thinking and new research findings with you.


Places are strictly limited so we advise you to take advantage of our early booking discount offer of £5 off, making tickets only £40 each with lunch provided.
