Leicester Lit & Phil Natural History Section - Biodiversity in Leicestershire in 2040: what, where, why and how

    End time

    John Clarkson, Head of Conservation, Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, online via Zoom


    More, bigger, better connected - and messy? Beavers, boar and bison? John Clarkson, Head of Conservation for Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust gives us his vision of the future for Leicestershire and Rutland: 

    "In the world of nature conservation, we are on the cusp of perhaps the most exciting times of the last 50 years; once again we can perhaps look forward with positivity to some commitment to change from the power-brokers and decision-makers that ultimately define the world that we live in. I want to go beyond the usual talk of rewilding - of species reintroductions and the like - as the future of nature conservation and to explore our future relationship with biodiversity in Leicestershire and Rutland over the coming decades."
