Coffee and Con(ser)v(ers)ation at Attenborough

Happy 10th Birthday Attenborough Nature Centre!

As part of the birthday week I held the first Coffee and Con(ser)v(ers)ation event with staff and volunteers considering the relationships between industry and nature. Topics of discussion included public perception of industry and sites such as Attenborough, the complex PR and monetary relationships between conservation charities and the companies which sponsor them and the different ways in which nature can be valued.

Later this week I will be exploring the reserve as the Unreliable Naturalist and hopefully engaging in some interesting converstions on a more one to one basis.
