Past PTES conferences
The Day of the Hedgehog 2015 was the first UK summit on hedgehogs in a decade, with leading hedgehog experts discussing the pressures facing Britain’s favourite wild animal in the 21st century. The Day of the Hedgehog was organised by People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) and the British Hedgehog Preservation Society (BHPS).
The event was designed to be a platform for knowledge-sharing from researchers who spend their working lives nose-to-nose with these beasts. The day also provided a platform for some of the 37 000 Hedgehog Champions to meet and share ideas. We also launched a ten year national conservation strategy and The State of Britain’s Hedgehogs 2015.
Dormouse Monitoring 2013 was a one-day conference about monitoring the elusive hazel dormouse that was held on Saturday 9th November 2013 at the University of Reading.
The day was for monitors and volunteers at National Dormouse Monitoring Programme (NDMP) sites whether new to dormouse monitoring or long committed. The aim was to give help and share ideas for those who might like to establish a local or county dormouse group and to help volunteers at all sites with the promotion of practical woodland management.
