Get close to nature to improve skills

What do wild animals and socially excluded people have in common?
Not a lot on the face of it, unless you work for one of the UK’s 47
wildlife trusts.

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust is hosting a conference – Raising Our
Game: Mainstreaming People and Wildlife – looking at ways of
involving hard to reach people in their local environments with
wildlife conservation.

The conference takes place in Coventry on 24-25 March and aims to
provide delegates with opportunities to “place people at the heart
of wildlife conservation”.

Honor Gay, head of people and wildlife at The Wildlife Trusts, said
the trusts were “brilliantly placed to act as catalysts in helping
to achieve the government’s goals of building cohesive communities,
improve skills, and enhance people’s quality of life.”
