Tuesday 12th February at 2 pm: Peter Harris “Bird conservation around the world and why it matters”

After working as an English teacher at Christ’s Hospital, and then as an Anglican clergyman near Liverpool, Peter Harris and his wife Miranda moved to Portugal in 1983 to establish and run A Rocha’s first field study centre and bird observatory. In 1995 the work was given over to national leadership and they moved to France where together with national colleagues they oversaw the establishment of two other centres while travelling to resource the growing movement of Christians active in nature conservation. A Rocha is now active in over 20 countries on 5 continents.

Peter's presentation will be an introduction to a number of projects around the world where he has been directly involved, particularly in Portugal, France, Kenya and Lebanon.

The talk will conclude with a discussion of some conservation motivations and consideration of the apparent difficulties that those arguments face in persuading wider society of the importance of safeguarding biodiversity.
