We are holding a series of CRP regional online ‘workshops’ in late June and early July, which will provide an opportunity for anyone interested in Curlew conservation to engage with us in Q&A, and to feedback specific concerns and opportunities relating to Curlew conservation in your local area; this feedback will be combined with that already received since our launch on 01 March, and will help inform our future work programme (which we intend to launch in late July), and our future engagement with Defra and other policy-makers.
The workshops will be held in the early evening from 1830-2000 hrs during the week beginning 28 June. Each session will start with an introduction from the CRP Chair and/or Manager, followed by informal discussion where we will take questions and feedback; the online chat function will also be available. We are hoping that some of our Steering Group members will also be able to attend and support these sessions (click here for their details).
Anyyone with an interest in Curlew conservation is welcome to attend and contribute, and please forward this email to any colleagues that may also be interested. Note that the regional groupings are loosely based on the map shown below, but this is only an arbitrary subdivision, so feel free to attend a workshop outside your home region if the date is more convenient.
The dates for each workshop and direct weblinks to the zoom registration pages are below (registration is free and only takes a few seconds):
Mon 28 June: South West and South East England
Tues 29 June: East England
Weds 30 June: East and West Midlands (including Welsh Borders)
Thurs 01 July: Yorkshire and North East England
Fri 02 July: North West England (including Lake District and Isle of Man)
In the meantime, please also think about any examples of Curlew conservation in your region that you think are delivering positive outcomes, and that could be used as inspirational and instructive case studies going forwards.
Finally, if you are unable to attend any of these sessions, or you would prefer to provide feedback by email, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday 04 July.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the workshops, and hope that we can run similar events next year in the field and in person!
