Event Details

The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) primarily work with those entrusted with privately owned land, to deliver biodiversity outcome in conjunction with working land use. Often these outcomes can exceed those achieved by designated nature reserves, but requires a highly collaborative approach, finding how ‘enlightened self-interest’ can be harnessed to deliver outcomes for nature.

Conservation has historically involved conflict, from the concept of prudent use of a natural resource to colonial models of exclusion and disinheriting of indigenous people from their lands. Today conservation means different things to different people and the role of humans in natural processes has never been more contentious.

Rory Kennedy, Director of the GWCT, will explore these conundrums and look at practical examples where conflict can be overcome for the good of conservation and humans alike.

Rory Kennedy is the Director of the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, a UK wide, research-based conservation charity. Rory trained as a Chartered Accountant, specialising in rural land use and economic development, before following his passion for conservation.
