What is conservation?

Monday 14 March: 6:00pm - 7:30pm

David Attenborough Building, New Museums Site, CB2 3QZ

It may sound like a question to which we all know the answer, but what exactly is conservation? We know it is the protection of biodiversity, but at what cost? Is it active or passive? Is it to the benefit of humans or for the intrinsic beauty of nature? Not even conservationists can agree. Join a panel of experts as they explore this very under defined term for a very broad area of work. Supported by Cambridge University Press.

Our distinguished panel comprises:
Chris Sandbrook - Lecturer in Conservation Leadership, University of Cambridge
Brian Eversham - Chief Executive of the BCN Wildlife Trust
Monipher Musasa – Research student in Conservation Leadership, University of Cambridge
Pamela Abbott - Director of Programmes at UNEP-WCMC
Rosie Travelyan - Director of the Tropical Biology Association
