Back to the Wild!

The UCL Conservation Society invites you to a new mini-conference on Rewilding and Species Re-introductions! With four exciting talks:

> Olly van Biervliet: "Beavers and rewilding: a UK case study" (NERC Doctoral Training Partnership PhD student at UCL)

> Richard Beason: “Calls of the wild: investigating rewilding effects on bats and birds” (NERC Doctoral Training Partnership PhD student at Royal Holloway University)

> Harry Stone: "What and where is rewilding?" Harry is a freshwater ecologist with a background in journalism, and runs the @NewsRewilding twitter page.

> Gavin Saunders: "History and attitudes to rewilding in UK conservation". Gavin is the chair of BANC, the British Association for Nature Conservation and has worked in the nature conservation sector since the 1980s. BANC was first founded by students at University College London. They questioned the status quo in nature conservation, and created the journal ECOS as an outlet for radical thinking. 

Each speaker will give a 15 mins presentation, and we will then have an open discussion and Q&A session, followed by a few drinks and snacks! Please BRING YOUR OWN glass/mug as there are a limited number of glasses. 

Tuesday 13th November, 4pm in UCL Geography Pearsons Building room G07. Tickets are FREE but space is limited, get yours here:
