THIS EVENT HAS PASSED (This page was previously listed under Events)
At the Uplands, Peatlands & Raptors conference, we will address the hugely controversial issues of why Britain has lost its upland hen harriers, and much more besides. This is a major national conference with relevance to wider
international issues as well. This landmark event will bring together key academics and practitioners to examine the ecological and conservation issues of raptors on uplands generally, and peatlands specifically, from bogs to heather
The first day (9 September) will be a full day of presentations with an optional informal evening meal which needs to be booked separately. The following day (Saturday, 10 September) will have plenary sessions in the morning followed by an after-lunch discussion forum in the early afternoon. Later in the afternoon there will be a field visit by coach / own transport to the Ringinglow area before returning to Sheffield early evening.
The conference will be opened by local MP, Angela Smith. Speakers for Friday include: Mark Avery, Alan Charles, Steve Redpath, Philip Merricks, Pat Thompson, Adrian Jowitt and Stephen Murphy. And, on Saturday morning there will be presentations by Barry O’Donoghue, Rhodri Thomas, Alan Fielding and Sonja Ludwig.
