Our ‘Caring for Wildlife’ Conference

First launched in 2019, join us for a weekend of talks and presentations from wildlife and veterinary experts.

Our annual ‘Caring for Wildlife’ Conference returned for its 3rd year in 2022, with a theme of ‘Changing times in British Wildlife Conservation, Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release’. The theme of ‘changing times’ was appropriate as the conference was our first run virtually. We were delighted to share the weekend with over 100 attendees.

Our next conference will be on the 4th/5th February 2023, check back here or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.
