PEATLAND for BIRDS
Issues & Opportunities in Re-constructing Peat Landscapes in uplands & lowlands

This conference is one of the Wilder Visions series of events which will be taking place over the next 2-3 years. The conference, Peatlands for Birds: Issues & Opportunities in Re-constructing Peat Landscapes in Uplands and Lowlands,will address key issues of how Britain’s peatlands could or should be managed and restored so that they provide afuture resilient and sustainable habitat at landscape level. This will be a major national conference with relevance to wider international issues as well that will bring together landowners, managers, practitioners and key academics to examine the ecological and conservation issues for the restoration of upland and lowland peatlands specifically, for birds.
We are now inviting offers of spoken and poster presentations from across Britain and beyond from a broad range of professionals, landowners, agencies and researchers so that we can reflect the many interests, activities and projects now taking place in these remarkable habitats. Offers of ideas for papers can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 March 2017; although early submission is recommended to avoid disappointment.
We are also inviting offers of support and sponsorship across the 3 days. Please contact Christine Handley via the email or telephone below to discuss. If you wish to be put on our mailing list or to offer support or a poster presentation, please email: email@example.com or telephone 0114 2724227.
