‘Releasing the Wild’ A Talk by Pete Cooper

Friday 5th April 2019 - 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Volunteer Training Centre

Address: Oakham Road

In a countryside sterilised of much of the life that was once found there, reintroductions are likely to perform an increasingly important role in species recovery. Pete Cooper from the Derek Gow Consultancy will tell the stories of their experience with restoring water voles, beavers, white storks and wildcats, and explain what future lifescapes, informed by the past, could look like to revitalise our nature.

Pete Cooper is an ecologist and researcher for the Derek Gow Consultancy, having previously completed an MSc in Biodiversity and Conservation from the University of Exeter. As well as a life-long naturalist, he is a keen writer and communicator for all things that are wild.

This talk will take place at the Volunteer Training Centre at 7pm on Friday 5th April. Booking is essential.
