Fit for the future: Developing an ecologically resilient protected sites network

12th July, Natural History Museum 


2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the development of a strategic network of nature reserves. This conference celebrates the achievements of this crucial cornerstone of UK nature conservation strategy but also looks forward.

Brexit provides an opportunity to re-think our strategy around the creation of an ecologically coherent network of designated sites on land and at sea. Drawing on research evidence we will explore whether there are alternative approaches that can account for the impacts of climate change and reflect our current understanding of ecological resilience, scale and the importance of connectivity.
