We are delighted to announce Dr. Craig Bennett, Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts as our opening speaker at VMG SPVS Virtual Congress, 13 – 14 May 2021.
Described as “one of the country’s top environmental campaigners” and by The Guardian as “the very model of a modern eco-general” Craig took the helm as Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts in April 2020. Since then , Craig has steered forward the movement’s collective vision of ‘a wilder future’ and instigated a bold target of seeing nature recovering across at least 30% of our land and seas by 2030.
It’s a cause dear to all of our hearts, and so we’re proud to have The Wildlife Trusts as this year’s sponsored charity.
Committed to making the world wilder, The Wildlife Trusts believe we are all part of nature and aim to make nature part of life, for everyone. Wherever you are there’s a Wildlife Trust nearby, caring for an astonishing 2,300 beautiful nature reserves throughout the UK and working closely with a wide range of communities, councils, farmers and land managers. They also stand up for nature under threat and inspire people to reconnect with and help wildlife through events and education programmes.
