Eyes in the Field

Birders Against Wildlife Crime and the WildOutside have organised the first Wild Life Crime Conference to be held in Buxton, Derbyshire in March 2015.

The conference (the first of many, we hope) is called ‘Eyes in the Field’, based on BAWC’s ‘Recognise, Record, Report‘ initiative.

Aimed at ‘the public’ rather than at professionals, the idea behind the conference is to give us all the information we need to help tackle wildlife crime by providing a spread of information on: the impacts of wildlife crime; the work that charities/NGOs do to investigate wildlife crime; the training the police and investigation officers receive in tackling wildlife crime; how the police respond to reports of wildlife crime; and the processes that enable laws to be passed (or repealed) in Parliament.

In alphabetical order our line-up of confirmed speakers is as follows:

This will be a very full and interesting day, and we are planning to end the conference with an open panel debate. Throughout the day we will be encouraging audience interaction wherever possible.
