FULLY BOOKED - Wildlife in the balance - BBOWT Annual Conference & AGM

Join a tour of the Museum of Natural History in the morning followed by BBOWT's annual AGM & Conference.

"Is there a sustainable future for the wildlife of Berks, Bucks and Oxon, or in 50 years’ time will today’s iconic species such as water voles and curlew be consigned to museums?

The topic of our Conference debate: Wildlife in the balance: securing a sustainable future for wildlife and people promises to be enlightening and stimulating.

I am delighted that a panel of experts, Peter Young, from the Green
Economy Council and government adviser on environmental sustainability, Poul Christensen CBE, President of National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs and former chair of Natural England and Stephen Trotter, Director of The Wildlife Trusts England, will help us to debate how we can take the true value of nature into account.

This is my first AGM and Conference since becoming Chief Executive. I look forward to meeting BBOWT members, and hearing about your appreciation of nature and wildlife, and the work that we do on your behalf."



Estelle Bailey, Chief Executive
