Wildlife Crime & Conservation Conference 2020 - Crimes against Wildlife, & Mitigation for Wildlife protection
Human activity, deliberate or otherwise, continues to have a negative impact on Ireland's environment and wildlife; the aim of this conference is to identify some of the threats, challenges, and solutions to resolve this.
Wildlife suffer not only from intentional harm and persecution such as poisoning and illegal hunting and trapping, but also from habitat destruction and continuing human encroachment on their dwindling wild spaces, through insensitive farming practices and ill-considered building construction, and through expansion of our transport infrastructure.
Finding solutions will require new ideas and approaches to existing conservation practices and protections, as well as increased engagement from communities, NGO's and local and national government. A new strategy is needed - the Conference will be a two-day event that will explore these issues and work on a strategy to create an environment of planned co-existence rather than inadvertent conflict with nature.
