After the success of Controversial Conservation 2013, World Land Trust is holding a second public debate at the Royal Society on 2 September 2014.

TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham will be chairing the event. Chris is a Patron of World Land Trust and well known for his irreverent and forthright views.

At Controversial Conservation 2013 Chris caused a stir by stripping off his shirt and tie to reveal a stop the badger cull T-shirt. Controversial Conservation 2014 also promises to be another lively evening, with no holds barred. (Who knows what surprises Chris will have in store for us?)

Chris will be joined by Bill Oddie, Mark Avery, John Burton and other debaters to discuss this years debate which is titled 'Killing other People's Birds' .

Killing other people’s birds is a common occurrence in many countries including Malta, British Sovereign Territory in Cyprus and Egypt. Here in Britain Hen Harriers, Woodcock and Snipe are among the migrants killed. This is a hugely controversial issue. Speakers will discuss what actions can be taken to end this controversial practice. Please book early as this event sold out last year.
