At this lunch and learn we will present three examples of biodiversity regeneration projects working with nature finance, including Lauriston Farm, Highlands Rewilding’s Beldorney Estate and RSPB’s Glencripesdale Reserve.

These projects range from urban to rural to remote and highlight how each project approached the first years of project planning and baselining, and the different financial mechanisms that supported these activities.

This event will include a presentation of how each of the projects approach their business models, community engagement and ecological data collection and will highlight common challenges and successes of the projects.

We will hear a brief presentation on each of the three case studies, followed by an open panel dialogue with representatives:

Leonie Alexander (External Director) and Rob Davidson (Farm Co-ordinator) from Lauriston Farm

Dr Penelope Whitehorn (Co-chief Scientist) from Highlands Rewilding

Izzy Baker (Site Manager) and Tasmin Fletcher (Warden) from RSPB


Join us on 9th January at 12pm – 1pm to learn from colleagues!
