This conference, Peatlands for Birds, 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 a future 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.
